K is for Kindness on today's A-Z Blog Challenge
I seldom run into writers who are unkind. Maybe it's because most of the writers I know or interact with online write for kids or young adult. But even those who write thrillers never say/write rude things to me or about me. Maybe I've been lucky.
I've had two rather blah reviews, but I can't call that unkind. That's just a difference of preference, and in both cases, the reviewer gave an opinion, not an unkind indictment of me or my work.
What I love about kindness is the contagion that is inherent in it. When someone says something kind or shows some kindness, that small exchange works a special magic. I'm much more likely to smile at the next person or give a compliment or let a driver ease ahead of me in slow traffic.
What about you? Have you had any "rough" encounters with other writers or reviewers? How do you react to those "kind" exchanges? Any pay it forward moments?
Now I have to go visit a few of the hard-working A-Z Bloggers. Please stop in and be KIND enough to leave a comment.
