Think about the writers and bloggers who have kindly shared their wisdom, thoughts, enthusiasm, and encouragement with you.
Think about the writers and bloggers who are newer to this whole blogging world.
Think about a post you've read that made your day, or a tweet you heard that made you want to reach out and encourage someone else.
Then . . . spring a Random Act of Kindness on those bloggers. Write a post, share the love. Encourage, give thanks!
For starters, I would like to say that if you are reading this, consider yourself a recipient of RAOK from me and if I could link you all, I would.
However, there a few bloggers that I'm going to highlight, just because they've stood out to me in some way:
Karen Lange at Write Now has shared kindness, wisdom, and encouragement with me from the beginning days of my blog. I really appreciate her, and give thanks for her.
Alex J. Cavanaugh walks the walk every day with encouragement and kindness. He gives shout outs for new bloggers and new authors every day.
Angela Brown is a blogger I met recently through A to Z, and I think her writing is stellar, and her kindness is obvious in all her posts.
Tara Tyler at Tara Tyler Talks and Unicorn Bell makes me laugh, inspires me with her fun posts, and always gives an encouraging word when she stops by a blog.
Laurel at Laurel's Leaves writes beautiful, thought-provoking posts.
Carol at Artzicarol Ramblings gives helpful insights into writing and editing.
Emily at Get Busy Writing makes my day with fun, and thoughtful posts on writing and life.
Angie at Notes from the Writing Chair has been an encouragement to me many times, and she is currently touring her book!
Susan Kaye Quinn is an awesome resource for writing encouragement and a look at the whole portfolio of the writing industry: indie, big pub, and small pubs. Plus, her new book, Closed Hearts is being released 5/23!!!
Between Burgers and Writing by Jeffrey Beesler is the BEST post I've read all week. Really. It is an awesome tribute to burgers and writing. You MUST read it. And I just randomly found it.
I could go on, and on, blogland is full of amazing, kind, encouraging bloggers!
100 Days of Revision, Day 18 Update
Writing is awesome!!! Revision is awesome too! I'm really getting my WIP whipped into shape, and although I still have major work to do, and I've made some mistakes in my revision process (you'll see my overworked first page at Artzicarol Ramblings next week), I'm still excited and feeling good about revision this time around. I'm also taking some time to scout out publishers, and agents, and research indie publishing too. It's an exciting time.
