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!
My RAOK is to offer one amazingly awesome commenter a copy of my absolute favorite writing Bible, Plot and Structure, by James Scott Bell. No, I don't collect royalties on his book, even though it may seem like it. His book helped me THAT much.
My kids will choose a winner on Friday, May 18th. If the winner already has this book, then they have the opportunity to pay it forward again, and pass it on as their RAOK.
All you have to do is leave a comment. And this is not a requirement, but if you'd like to give a special shout out to someone who's made a difference in your writing life, please do so!
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.
Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness? Let me know in the comments!
(By the way, aren't Angela and Becca amazing? I had a peek at their Emotion Thesaurus, and it ROCKS!)
