The Writing Community Takes Action
The writing community is one of the most amazing communities I know of because when something bad happens, it comes together to help. In the wake of the horrible tragedy that has befallen Japan the writing community has done just that. Led by author Keris Stainton, a generous group of authors is auctioning off everything from signed books to manuscript critiques. The proceeds will go to relief efforts in Japan. If you've been wondering what you can do to help, this is an excellent avenue. Check out Authors For Japan and bid on something today. Your bid will save lives.
I'm proud to be part of the writing community and organizations like Authors For Japan are a big reason why. All the good intentions in the world are useless without action. We add action to intentions and the world is a little bit better for it. Thank you all for being part of that.
