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 randomly picking my longest-lasting critique partner, Judy Burnett Schneider. Her books, time and talent have helped to improve my writing not to mention my life. She is the co-author of the Frantic Woman's Guide to Life, has hosted numerous writing camps for children and is one of the brains behind Fat Plum, a writer's service. She is always ready with great ideas and motivation. She also introduced me to my other "bestest" critique partners, Julie Long and Mary Patioullet. All of these writers have helped me along the way and I am truly grateful. I owe you all a coffee!
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.
