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 picking two people for my Random Act Of Kindness. They are Karen Cioffi and Elysabeth Eldering. Both of these women have been very generous with their time and writing knowledge and I have benefited so much from each of them. I am blessed to have them both as friends. Karen and Elysabeth, for my RAOK gift, I will be dedicating a blog post to each of you!
Karen blogs over at Karen Cioffi Writing and Marketing and Elysabeth blogs over at Elysabeth's Writing Emporium. If you have a minute, please stop by these blogs and tell them how awesome they are!
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.
