Random Acts of Kindness BLITZ...for Writers

I know I'm a day late...but hey, being kind isn't for just one day, is it?


The incredible Becca and Angela at the Bookshelf Muse blog are hosting this blitz. If you've never visited their amazing emotion thesaurus online, you should because it's an invaluable resource for plodding writers like me.


It's also a special time because they launched the book The Emotion Thesaurus! Go and check it out, and while you're there - they have a fabulous prize for you. 


KINDNESS MAKES LIFE WORTHWHILE


Within the writer's community I've found a never-ending supply of encouragement, support and genuine kindness which I appreciate so much. I can't mention everyone, so I've picked THREE special people, all of them fabulous authors, who are always there with advice whenever I send out a pathetic call to them:


First is Elin Gregory who I chat to almost every day about writerly stuff and just plain nonsense. But she cheers me on constantly and sometimes just makes me laugh.
Also Steve Emmett and Julia Kavan who are always ready to down tools and help me along when I whimper.


Thank you guys! And to all of you I promise you'll always have a copy of any book I publish and if you need help, beta-reading, general jollying along - then I'm there!

  18. I'm just a new girl on the block and already after just a couple of weeks I am dumb-founded at the kindnesses shown to me from all the women writers I have 'met' these past weeks. You are an amazing bunch! So glad I finally followed my heart! :-0
