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 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 celebrate the release of their book, The Emotion Thesaurus:A Writer’s Guide To Character Expression Becca and Angela at The Book Shelf Muse are hosting a Titannic Random Act of Kindness Blitz to celebrate writers. And because I think Kindness is contagious, I’m participating too. My sister, Jean Elaine, is my hero. My go to person when I need an honest critique, feedback or inspiration.You can find her at Jean’s Writing and Good eReading. My big sister, she is my biggest fan, even though she is misguided in her politics (just kidding). She is a driving force to complete my first novel, and an endless source of support for me. I don’t know what I would do without her. To show my appreciation for your kindness, I am sending her an Amazon gift card.

If you have a minute, stop by one of her blogs and say hi to Jean. And, if you have someone special you would like to randomly thank or acknowledge, join the us and celebrate! Send them an email, let others know. Show your appreciation.  Pay it forward and pass it on!  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!

About Sheila

Growing up I was always told, "Don't put into writing what you don't want others to read." It was meant to be a warning. One I frequently ignored. So, I spent my days hiding out in the cow pasture filling my trusty notebooks with hopes and dreams, stories, poems and musings. It was my haven and the words I wrote were for my eyes only. Now, at 58 I've found the courage to write my words for everyone to read them. "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." Ernest Hemingway

    Thanks so much for posting, Sheila! And thank you for honoring your sister. Sisters and brothers don’t get enough credit, imo.
