Spanish to English translations [Non-PRO] Art/Literary
Spanish term or phrase:diván (see context)
¿Has escrito cuentos en inglés y español.¿No hay una novela en tu diván?
I took this word to mean body of poetic work in an Eastern context, however this text is from Spain.
Is it just body of work?
Could it be on the horizon?
Explanation: I think it refers to what might be written in the future. Hope it's ok. Regards. Pampi

Do you have a novel in you?
Explanation: or, do you have it in you to write a novel?
I'm only going by previous interpretation, I'm not sure if this is what it actually means but it might fit and is certainly how we would say it if that is what it means. Spanish negatives "no hay...?" often translate to affirmatives in English.
