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.
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 Jessie Oliveros, who has been my critique partner since the very beginning of this crazy journey. She was one of my first people to comment on my blog, and she readily accepted when I asked if she would read my book. For my RAOK gift, I'm going to send Jessie some uniquely Canadian clothes for her new baby. (Okay, maybe not Canadian - but something cute). I'm also going to read her pirate book this summer, which I was going to do already so that doesn't really count. If you have a minute, go stop by Jessie's blog and tell her how awesome she is.
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. And they are going to have some major awesome things happening all week, so keep checking back.
