There is a patch that makes softwrap wrap lines only between
words, but it is against git and won't appear in nano before
version 2.8.1 or 2.8.2 -- if at all.  See:

If I were you, I would unset softwrap and just let nano
break long lines with hard line breaks.  If later you want
to export your texts to some other program, you could do
'nano --fill=999999 --auto yourfile' and then type Meta-J
to "rejustify" every paragraph into a single long line.
