Update #9

EMMA IS OFF LIVING, WHICH, IN THIS CASE MEANS, EMMA IS OFF WRITING. THE WEBPAGE “CONSCIENCE ROUND” HAS THUS BECOME SENTIENT, AND CONTINUES TO UPDATE. UPDATES TO TERMINATE ON NOVEMBER THE THIRTIETH.

1. What Emma wrote on her seventh day of NaNoWriMo, November 7, 2010

I’ve hit the 10,000 word mark. Now I have roughly five plots in one, all of them more ludicrous than the previous (consider plot #1, male protagonist sprouts flowers in his hair, and plot #4, male and female protagonist go on a trip to see a massive underground glass bell.)

So far every one of those 10,000 words has been dismal action or dumb allegory. Where is the spark, Emma? Better find it, better find it soon.

2. 2. Emma’s NaNoWriMo ‘10 Novel (fragment #3)

Light roaming even beneath his eyelids, in the roots of his flowery hair, disrobing the innocent knave to the frivolous eyes of dying Lady Day. Evening is beginning to make itself seen in the corners of the world, becoming first apparent as it crawls from the backs of mountains. He seeks an escape, these pent-up frustrations to which he knows neither the beginnings nor the end. He does not want to do anything for the rest of his life.

    The fragments we’ve seen are neither dismal nor dumb.

    Em edit: Thank you! Unfortunately most of my novel consists of sentences I am ashamed to have created. But that’s the whole point of NaNo, right?
