Random Acts Of Kindness BLITZ…For Writers!

WOOO-HOOO, release day! 

I know we’ve been teasing you with something epic, and so here it is: we are opting not to do a traditional launch day book splash. Instead, we’ve gathered a ton of people to help us celebrate something much bigger and better: WRITERS!

WHY?  Well, perhaps we’re biased, but we believe that the writing community is the best of the best. Filled with people who support and educate, we all learn and grow together.

How many of these people do YOU rely on? 

  • Critique Partners, who spend hours showing us how to make our work gleam
  • Writing Groups, who cheers us on 
  • Writing Friends, who listen, support & and be our rock when we have doubts
  • Authors and Illustrators, who inspire us through their books and art
  • Book bloggers & Librarians, who open our minds to incredible books we might not have otherwise read
  • Blog Visitors & Readers, who spend time with us, sharing their thoughts, ideas and opinions
  • Industry Professionals (Agents, Editors, Copy editors, etc.)  who help us to improve our writing and succeed

Many people are involved with the Writing Community, but at its heart are WRITERS. We love you guys, and wanted to celebrate YOU! And what better way to do that than through a Random Act of Kindness Blitz?

Kindness is POWERFUL. Even the smallest gesture can fuel a person and keep them going.

All over the blogosphere today, you’ll see Random Acts of Kindness toward Writers. These are by people who want to share their appreciation for those who have helped or supported them at some point along the Writing Path.

We’ve seen a lot of changes in the Industry lately. Change can lead to great things, but there’s always growing pains that go along with it.  Today is a day to forget what divides us and instead remember what unites us. We all share a passion for the written word. Today, let’s celebrate those who write!


Each and every person who visits this blog is special to us, and because we are hosting this event, we wanted to offer a gift that everyone could enjoy. Our RAOK offering is a free PDF of Emotion Amplifiers, which looks at 15 specific conditions (Pain, Hunger, Thirst, Attraction, Exhaustion, etc) that can alter a character’s physical and mental state.

A companion to The Emotion Thesaurus, this guide shows writers how to stress out their characters so their reaction to emotion is HEIGHTENED. Each entry lists body language, thoughts and visceral response choices associated with an Amplifier. You can find the “Free Download” Button for Emotion Amplifiers in the sidebar under the Heifer International Badge.

We hope this will help you bring about bigger emotional moments when you write. Thank you for helping to make our community a wonderful place to be!

Is there someone special you would like to acknowledge this week? Click on the links below to see how others are celebrating, and if you like, JOIN US!  Use any platform–blog, Facebook, Twitter or email–and offer a kind word or gesture. The very best part of kindness is that it is contagious. 🙂

This is great. I publicly thanked a fellow writer for helping me with my work today. But I did that before heard about this so I’m going to have think of who I can do something nice for. I can’t wait to get a copy of the emotion thesaurus.
