A smile. An encouraging word. A thoughtful gesture. Each day people interact with us, help, and make our day a bit brighter and full. This is especially true in the Writing Community.
Take a second to think about writers you know, like the critique partner who works with you to improve your manuscript. The writing friend who listens, supports and keeps you strong when times are tough. The author who generously offers council, advice and inspiration when asked.
So many people take the time to make us feel special, don't they? They comment on our blogs, re-tweet our posts, chat with us on forums and wish us Happy Birthday on Facebook.
To commemorate the release of their book The Emotion Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Act Of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!
**I am spreading the love today to my blog Sisters, Valerie Kemp and Lacey Boldrev, over at Sisters in Scribe. They are not only amazing critique partners, but have given me endless support and encouragement throughout my writing journey. Since we have done a lot of YA contests and book giveaways over the years, I wanted to return the favor. Valerie and Lacey, for my RAOK gift, in addition to my eternal gratitude, I want to give you each the gift of any YA book you want from The Book Depository. And for those reading, please stop by and tell them how they awesome they are too--they deserve it!**
Do you know someone special that you'd like to randomly acknowledge?
Don't be shy--come join us and celebrate! Send them an email, give them a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. Kindness makes the world go round. :)
Becca and Angela have a special RAOK gift waiting for you as well, so hop on over to The Bookshelf Muse to pick it up.
