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!
So, I am Blitzing 3 people who have really contributed to my writing life 🙂
Firstly Rob who is my constant advisor, critique partner and who keeps me strong when times are tough. Thank you for keeping me going, for your encouragement and support when I’ve been so full of self doubt at times. There will be a little something arriving in the post for you soon.
Secondly Jayne Curtis who listens and offers great advice. Jayne, there will be a little something arriving in the post from Amazon for you within the next couple of days.
Thirdly Elizabeth Haynes for your constant advice, encouragement and inspiration. When you’re done with that diet we’re going out for a slap up meal, my shout!
And last but by no means least….. I would like to thank you guys, my followers. It’s your comments on my blog that keep me going. I’ll just say here and now that if there is EVER anything I can help with, just give me a shout, e mail me, or contact me through FaceBook. I really do appreciate your support and would love to give something back if I can. You are all very very special. 🙂
Do you know someone special that you’d like to randomly acknowledge? Don’t be shy, come join us and celebrate! Send them an e mail, 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.
