I've been working on Dakmir over the weekend, but it was mainly minor worldbuilding stuff, with nothing new to add to the story.
Books: I bought a copy of One Night with the King over the weekend. I hate this custom of renaming novels after the movies made based on them. I will eventually go to Amazon and buy a copy of Hadassah, the proper novel, but I have to admit, I did want one with the pretty pictures. (g) The book is by Tommy Tenney.
NaNoWriMo: I am thinking of working on Dakmir for Nanowrimo this year. I think I will not attempt to meet the 50,000-word goal. But I will work on concentrated, focused writing, the best writing I can do, to get the basic story down. I don't think I will ever work toward the 50,000 words in a month goal again. My focus is on quality, now. 'No plot, no problem' doesn't cut it. That just wastes my time. Preparation must come first.
