NaNoWriMo, Day Ten

10 Nov

At a coffee shop this morning, I devoted four hours to working on my NaNoWriMo novel, an intense and overtly autobiographical novel that will ultimately be magical realism. I was rather shaken up by it this morning. Therefore this afternoon I’m nibbling on dark chocolate and instead working on the other novel I wish to complete this month: an escapist fantasy novel.

There’s something therapeutic about taking a break from a novel inspired by real-life trauma…and instead working on a novel that includes lines such as this:

“Here he is, bundle of love,” Bertram says, as we shove the immobilized evil sorcerer onto our flying carpet.
