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!
***There are so many people who make my writing world a whole lot brighter! I want to choose you all! But in the spirit of keeping it simple, I am going to go back to some of my very first online roots! And I can't pick just one, so I'm going with two.
Christine Marciniak, one of my very first online critique partners. Christine is always willing to drop anything and read chapters anytime I send them.
Kim Baccellia, another of my online critique partners. Kim has been so completely supportive in my writing career, and has always been first in line to review my books!
It's hard to decide what to give, so in the spirit of giving something I'd like to receive, I'm sending both Christine and Kim Starbucks gift cards.***
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.
