Camp Journal, Day 11

Whew. Just a quick note. I'm pretty worn out. Got to feeling pretty good and did a couple of sprints up the trail this evening. Didn't get that much further as my sprinting isn't as fast as it used to be, not to mention how heavy this pack  (day job, life responsibilities) is.  But I … Continue reading Camp Journal, Day 11

Camp Journal, Day 9

Decided I didn't want to wait, so I started up The Steps You Take yesterday. It's slow going but according to a sign I passed first thing this morning, I've completed 25% of the trail (word count 14,754). It's been pretty easy so far, not much of an incline; the path has been fairly clear. … Continue reading Camp Journal, Day 9

2nd Letter from Camp

Dear Mom, Here we are at day seven and it would appear I've been adopted by a rabbit.  A big, fluffy, pretty brown - the biggest rabbit I've ever seen. When I asked one of the counselors about it, she said there's a whole warren of the big bunnies just outside the camp grounds. They … Continue reading 2nd Letter from Camp

The Plan

I have a tribe - a grouping of friends who share aspects of my eclectic nature, offer spot on advice, teach me things, and talk me off ledges. It's not a formal tribe by any means, most of them don't know the others exist but that's not necessary in order for this to work. I would … Continue reading The Plan

I got situated in my cabin Friday and immediately got busy tidying up the place … Continue reading Letter from Camp

The Calm Between Storms

So to the left or rather behind me, the flurry of fund raising kick off with its excitement and visions of possibilities and in front?  CAMP NANO!!! I'm taking today to get some of the smaller to-dos, to-done. Come to think of it, today hasn't been all that calming, lol. In fact, if I look … Continue reading The Calm Between Storms

2 Legit So We Can Quit – our day jobs that is.

So, as you know, I've spent the last eight years publishing my own work and occasionally coaching writer's from "blank page to published" under the name Nowata Press Publishing & Consulting.  I've made a decent hobby of things so far, but now, it's time to level up as they say and turn this into a … Continue reading 2 Legit So We Can Quit – our day jobs that is.

Tis the Season

Not only is Camp NaNo looming on the horizon, but so is my annual writing event at the Blair-Caldwell African-American Research Library in Denver, CO.   I'm once again presenting a condensed version of my writer's coaching program. How to Write and Publish a Book in 6 Months or Less. If you're in or are going … Continue reading Tis the Season
