Random Act 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. If you've read my blog very often, you've seen me talk about the Emotional Thesaurus blog a lot. It's a fabulous and valuable resource for writers, so I'm thrilled to help celebrate the book's release. And because I think KINDNESS is contagious, I'm participating in the ROAK blitz too!

I am randomly picking Joanne Levy, who is always positive and supportive to all writers and never ceases to make me smile. Joanne, for my ROAK gift, I'm sending you a thank-you note and promising to super-blitz your SMALL MEDIUM AT LARGE release this summer so everyone else can enjoy your humor as much as I do.
I really appreciate Joanne's positive energy online. You can find her on twitter, facebook and on her blog. 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.
