I have Bocce’s whole story planned out but wasn’t sure where I’d be dropping all the info over the course of the series. But since I had already started it with Volume 2, I figured I really should continue fleshing it out with Volume 3 rather than let it sit fallow for too long. The tricky thing was trying to find ways to naturally transition from events in the present to scenes of Bocce’s flashback. I wanted it to feel organic to the actual story and not just tacked on. Basically, in each case, something about the present had to jog his memory of a particular flashback. In this case, Jayd asking Bocce about his arm led to a good excuse to have Bocce think back to his farm days.
