Donna Gephart posted a link to a story about World Kindness Day, and I got all excited that there actually was such a thing. World Kindness. That's just spectacular. I love it!
It got me to thinking of all the kindness I've received in my own life, like Stina Lindenblatt offering to do all my author photos for me. Like all the folks who have offered to read my work, unasked, in an effort to help me grow as a writer. It made me think of the career advice author Janet Gurtler has given me, the encouragement from friends like Angela Townsend, and phone conversations with people like Martina Boone, helping me work through plot snarls. I am blessed to have the support of hundreds of writers online, and here in my home city. Your thoughtfulness gives me strength when times are tough!
Between Becca and I, we could fill an ocean with the kindness given to us--friendship, exposure, support and words of encouragement and expertise. Thank you!
We wanted to give a little back today, so we are offering a small giveaway: 6 critiques of your manuscript's first 250 words.
Oh, but there's a catch! We want you to spread some kindness as well, so we're asking you to enter someone else's name for the 250 word critique, along with your own. THREE of you will earn a 250 word critique for yourself and your friend!
This is a one-day only giveaway! All you have to do is leave a comment with some contact information so we can get hold of you, and the name of the person you'd like to win a critique with. Easy-peasy! :)
Ready? Set? GO!
**Contest is now closed! Winners will be announced this weekend! Thanks for entering, and good luck!**
