We Can Help You Turn Your ‘Messy’ NaNo Draft into a Published Work of Art

Whew! Did you cross the finish line with 50,000 words or more, or did you find yourself hitting the wall around 30,000 and calling it a day? Say you barely did 10K words before the desire just wasn’t there?

No worries. Nowata Press is here to help you get from blank page (or where ever you find yourself after NaNo) to published.

Let’s schedule your free, one hour consultation.  There we’ll answer your questions on how we can best help you achieve your writing and publishing goals.

The Countdown to NaNoWriMo 2017 Continues…

Will this be the year you write that first draft?  You’ll read that a lot in the coming days as writers the world over are gearing up to meet this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge.  What’s that you say? You’ve never heard of NaNo?

Well, Nowata Press to the rescue.

From their site,

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.

On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.

So, if you’ve been harboring a secret desire to write a novel, here’s your chance to join a world-wide community of word smiths as they power through thirty days of noveling frenzy.

I see the doubt in your eyes.  You’re wondering if it really can be done. Well, I’ve successfully drafted 50K or more words for three of my published novels.

NaNo!!! It’s Almost HERE!!!

Unlike Ms. Kara (Boho Berry on YouTube / owner of Boho Berry Paperie on Etsy), we here at Nowata Press aren’t that organized. We are aware that NaNoWriMo is practically right around the corner (22 days, YIKES), but the best we’ve come up with is that we will be participating.

At this point, we have no idea which one of the million plot bunnies we have hanging about the warren these days – one of which hopped up a couple of days ago with all the energy of a cartoon squirrel after drinking a can of Jolt cola – that we’ll be attempting to finish but I’m sure, much like we’ve done in years past, it’ll be November 3rd or so when we finally get it together and start putting words to page.

We’d like to maybe host a write-in or a fund raiser – we’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, drop us a line, let us know if you’re going to participate this year and if you’re working your #Preptober magic.

We’ll be sitting here looking over the warren hoping one of these bunnies manages to sit still long enough to hold our attention.

Cats – Can’t Write With Them, Can’t Live without Them ;-)

From the wonderful blog of Milly Schmidt – a fun, well written take on the writing life with cats. If you aren’t already, be sure to follow her blog for more ‘tails’ of her writing journey.

 

It is a truth universally acknowledged* that if you’re a writer who has a cat – well you’re going to need all the help you can get. They use many tactics to keep us distracted, and it is up to all of us to compile our resources and figure out a way to combat this threat […]
