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 Emotional Thesaurus, Becca and Angela at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a TITANIC Random Acts of Kindness BLITZ. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating too!
There are a lot of wonderful people out there in the writing community, but I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who takes time out of their day (and writing schedule) to visit us here at Operation Awesome. You read the posts. You enter the contests. You wow us month after month with your Mystery Agent contest entries. We may write the blog, but YOU all help make OA the place it is.
So, as a small thank you, I decided to run a little mid-week contest. The prize? A book (or pre-order) of your choice. Want to win? All you have to do is leave a comment before Tuesday the 22nd to be in for a chance to win. I'll announce the winner next Wednesday using, of course, an awesome random method (I'm thinking names in a hat *grins*).
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 the 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.
