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!
Tracy E. Banghart thought nothing of volunteering to read my 95K manuscript last September at a SCBWI schmooze. And boy, what a treat for me! I've haven't had such clear and elegant feedback in years. She's awesome, y'all!
In the spirit of celebrating one of Tracy's favorite things, I'm giving her a gift card to Crumbs.com so she can eat cupcakes all week! Email me your address, Tracy, and the card will be on it's way! bethanydellinger at gmail dot com.
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.
