Random Acts of Kindness BLITZ!



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.

Kindness ROCKS!
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'm BLITZING Author Gerri Brousseau! She is amazing and helps writers with marketing and promoting their blogs through the group WRITERS on Facebook. She's always willing to help and promote other authors. I love being able to recognize her for her unselfish act of paying it forward.

Gerri, for my RAOK, I'm offering you a copy of The Emotion Thesaurus! You are going to love it! I use this information in a lot of my writing.
I really appreciate Gerri, who blogs at Nights of Passion. If you have a minute, please stop in 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.
Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. This is such a cool idea!! I've been working my way through "The Magic" by Rhonda Byrne (the author of "The Secret") and the purpose of the book is to teach us to show gratitude each and every single day - all day long, really. And to make sure we share with others how much we appreciate them. Once I get my blog back up and running, I'm definitely going to incorporate this!!

    As always, thank you for sharing all of your wisdom!!

  3. Thank you so much, Tonya. You can't imagine my surprise to open Facebook this morning and see this post! I'm honored, and for once in my life, at a loss for words. I began Writers on Facebook simply so my writer friends would't have to read about my cousin feeding her pig on farmville. I wanted a place where writers could simply be who and what they are. Thank you so much for this recognition and I can't wait to get The Emotion Thesaurus!
