Random Act Of Kindness Blitz!

Kindness is contagious. I see that all the time in this writing community. We respect each other’s thoughts about the writing process, discuss challenging scenarios and act as beta readers. Even commenting on someone else’s post is a lovely kindness!

As a way to celebrate the release of their new book, THE EMOTION THESAURUS, Becca and Angela over at The Bookshelf Muse are hosting a Random Act Of Kindness blitz. And because kindness is contagious, I’m participating.

I’m going to send a care package of Oregon tea or coffee–those delicious writing elixirs–to Florence Fois of Fois in the City. Florence’s blog is always inspiring and full of warmth, humor and useful information. She’s a community builder who is very thoughtful and diligent about commenting on others’ blogs, including mine. I always appreciate her perspective and kind words. Please go check her site out if you haven’t!

So Florence: tea or coffee, and caffeinated or decaf? I’m excited to send you a little goody to thank you for all your support and good-heartedness.

Do you guys want to randomly recognize a special writer in your life? Feel free to join the RAOK celebration! Send that person an email, give a shout out, or show your appreciation in another way. 

And Becca and Angela, as part of this exciting kind-fest, have a gift for you over at The Bookshelf Muse, so go check it out.

Have you ever participated in or been the recipient of a Random Act Of Kindness? This fall I posted about the awesome middle schoolers who came to rake my lawn. Feel free to share your experiences with kindness in the comments!

  1. Laura, how perfectly delightful. Coffee and decaf. Can you explain how this happens:

    cronin501@aol.com is my email … Thanks 🙂

  2. Laura, What a gift! And well-deserved for Florence. Thanks, too, for all the links. Thinking on how I can spread the love this week….

    • Oh good, Christi! I hope you participate. If so you can grab the image, post your own RAOK, then go to The Bookshelf Muse and enter your link as a participant at the bottom of today’s post.

    Coffee and Tea–what a great gift for a writer. Thanks for sharing Florence with us, and for joining in on RAOK!


  4. Yay for writing elixers! I find coffee is my usual go-to, but a good cup of tea is never a bad idea. 🙂 Happy RAOK week!
