Each day people interact with us, help, and make our day a bit brighter. 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 celebrate our successes.
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.
Now being new to the writing community, I’ve had trouble deciding what to offer and to whom. After some pondering I realized that one of my strengths is a good eye for typos and grammatical errors.
So I’ve decided to offer a proofreading of one manuscript to one commenter chosen randomly from those who comment on this post. To be considered, the comment must be received by the end of the day this coming Saturday, May 19. If chosen, you can use it yourself or let someone else use it instead, and there is no time limit on claiming your prize.
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.
