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 […]

15 Dating Problems Only Book Lovers Understand

Oh how well we can relate, lol. Great post found on Capital Nerd, here on WordPress. Check it out…

Adoring books and literature has its perks. You’re never, ever bored, you’ve got the whole proper grammar thing down, and you actually have better social skills than non-readers (yay, empathy!). Still, loving books can present a few unique conundrums for your love life: What do you do when your significant other loathes your favorite genre, or is uninterested in reading altogether? Even worse: What if he or she is also a bibliophile, but borrows your books, bends your spines and dog-ears your pages?

1. It’s hard to meet new people, because your nose is constantly in a book.

Coffee shops, subways, bars… no matter where you go, you look too preoccupied to seem approachable.

2. When someone does finally engage in conversation with you, it rarely meets your expectations.

On some level, you’re aware that not every conversation can be a witty, perfectly-crafted arrangement of words. But that doesn’t keep…

By Stacy Murison It was too late. I had already unscrewed the hardware from the kitchen cabinets as well as the cabinet doors. I had painted the box frames. The primer dried uneven and gloppy in some places. I sanded. Worse. I sanded some more. Somewhat better. This was nothing like the This Old House […]
