Random Acts of Kindness Day 3: Win even MORE!


WOOT! Day three of celebrating Random Acts of Kindness in the writing community! As I mentioned yesterday, the Industry is showing their own RAOK spirit and appreciation for writers by offering some amazing RAOK gifts for you to win. Yesterday, some lucky writers scored Scrivener Software and a Query Tracker Premium Membership!

Here's the deal: with all the turmoil in our industry right now, Becca and I felt a bit of kindness could go a long way. And with the help of a ton of bloggers, we blitzed the community with Acts of Kindness! If seeing so much generous spirit has moved you to surprise someone with a RAOK yourself, please add your blog to our link list at the bottom of this post!

Now it's our Industry Partners' turn. Check out these amazing RAOK offerings, just for writers.

Today, you have 5 chances to win, so read on!


RAOK Gift #1: Two Scrivener Software packages (1 PC, 1 Mac)

Scrivener is billed as 'your complete writing studio' and it really is. This software, developed by a writer for writers, is the complete package. How many notebooks do you fill up as you research, brainstorm, outline, create character sketches and finally draft and revise your novel? Well, flipping through that stack of paper or set of binders is a thing of the past with Scrivener. Organize, storyboard, make notes and research all in the same place, and best of all, access it all as you write.

The index card and cork board system is nothing short of brilliant. Simply put, Scrivener is a writer's best friend. I love how they evolve to serve writers in this new world of publishing, like using the compile feature to export manuscripts to Kindle or epub formats!

More good news: David and the crew at Scrivener loved the idea of RAOK for writers so much they are giving out software packages every day this week!


RAOK Gift # 2: THREE Critique Circle Memberships (1 year)

The Critique Circle has a special place in my heart, not only because it's where I realized I knew only a fraction of what I thought I did 'cut my teeth' as a writer, but because this is where Becca and I met. One chance critique has led to many years of friendship and support, and this is one of the great aspects of an online community like Critique Circle.

CC is a password-protected critiquing site based on the tit-for-tat principle. You critique other member's  work, and another will critique yours. Each piece you put up will earn an average of 6-8 critiques. This is a lot of feedback to help you get your manuscript ready for publication.   With thousands of members, you WILL find people to critique your work. Membership is free, but as a premium member, you can create private forums & story queues, and form smaller, more intimate critique groups. This site consistently earns Writer's Digest top 101 sites for a reason! If you are looking for a solid & safe site for your work and want to find a critique group that is all about working together to improve, this is the place.

Want to win one of these Amazing RAOK Gifts? Of course you do! Just fill out this FORM, and one more thing...consider spreading a bit of Kindness.  Visit some blogs and comment. Tell someone you appreciate their help. Maybe even offer up a RAOK salute of your own!

Angela and I met at CC, so we're kind of partial to that site ;). Seriously, a great place to meet other writers and find people who can make the most of your writing.

And I've heard nothing but great things about Scrivener, too.
