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.
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.
There are some people on the interwebz who are always *ALWAYS* kind, encouraging, and supportive on blogs, Twitter, Facebook etc. no matter how crappy their day may be. I actually could list a few others but that would be overkill.
Here are the THREE writer friends I'd like to spotlight for there unfailing KINDNESS:
1) Lola Sharp- Your consideration and honesty is electrifying. When you speak out about rudeness and meanies, I'm always like, "Yes, exactly what she said!" Can I be you when I grow up?
2) Lindsay Scott- You always have a virtual smile for me in the high school halls of Twitter. You're like the sweet girl cheering by the lockers with your pom-poms, not even realizing how cool and gorgeous you are, inside and out!
3) SA Larsen- You're always lifting other writers up and cheering them on, in your own sophisticated and classy way. You put together a writer's support group on Facebook. Enough said. :D
SO, Lola, Lindsay, and Sheri, what can I give you in return? I'd like to offer you my time and hope that it's enough. I will always be here to beta read anything you've got for me. Hit me up, I'm waiting! xoxo
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.
