Random Act of Kindness Blitz Tour!!

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 am picking Shen Hart, my adult critique partner who has been invaluable in helping with my western. For her support, encouragement, and totally awesomeness, I’m offering to do a beta read of her story. **
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. Traci,
    It’s lovely to recognize the people that help us through our writing careers! I’m so glad that you found someone awesome to help w/your adult stories! ((HUGS)). I am also participating today and am recognizing my entire crit group (hehehe).


  2. Aww thank you very kindly =D

    I love reading your western, it’s outside of my usual genres but it’s so well done it’s a pleasure. I’m glad I ended up beta reading for you, you’re a lovely person and a real joy to have around 😀


  3. Crit partners are THE BEST! So glad you picked one of yours. Thanks so much for participating in this, Traci. I am thrilled to see so many people jump on the RAOK train and pass it on. This is so awesome!



  4. I know, Stina. There are a LOT of people I acknowledge as having got where I am. I would do back flips for them. But with yaff, I’m able to do the betas & crits regularly, with Shen, we’re just starting out and I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her help.


    1. I hope you get a chance to in the future, Misha!! It’s loads of fun and it can be something simple–especially if you have a time-consuming life like most of us.


  5. It is so much fun to read about the awesome people in this RAOK week 🙂
    Hope you enjoyed the week too!
