FAQs about my writing course and a writing sample from one of my students.

As many of you who follow me on my various social media handles  know, I have started a writing course  called Fundamentals of Creative Writing: A project based course to strengthen your writing skills.

Since a lot of people are  asking me the same questions over and over, I thought I would do a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), so that the next time someone asks me about it, I can point them here.


1. What is this course about?


 The course is a writing course, consisting of on-demand video lectures. It is divided into several sections. At the end of each section, there is an assignment for you to do and submit.
See in detail, what you will be learning HERE.

2. What is the duration of the course?

The duration depends entirely on you, as you can do the course at your own pace.
 Here's what you will get:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

Always wanted to write? Here's your chance!

Over the last few weeks, I have been working really hard to put together a comprehensive course on Creative Writing. Please see the video above to know the course content. Whenever I have done Instagram and Facebook live, there are several questions I get asked over and over again. I list these (In no particular order of importance)

1. Where do you get your ideas from?

2. What inspires you to write?

3. How can we improve our writing?

4. What do we do to get published?

5. I am afraid to send my manuscript to the publisher. What if the publisher steals my ideas?

6. How do you craft such believable, realistic characters?

7. Whenever we read your books, we can see the whole thing happening in front of our eyes. How do we write like that?

8. I don't get any ideas but I want to write.

9. Is it essential to keep a writer's notebook?

10. if we keep a writer's notebook, what should we write in it?

11. Is dialogue really essential in a story?

12. How do we develop a plot?


So I put …

Last post for Feb!

I shall blog again very soon! There's something I have been working hard on. (related to writing but not a book..Guess what it is?) Watch this space!

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.

Why then did you leave? A poem.

This is a poem I wrote many years back. I wanted to share it today.



Why did you leave?

The last song is yet to be sung,
The last bell is yet to be rung.
The last book is yet to be read,
The last word is yet to be said.

The last bow is yet to be taken.
The last Martini is yet to be shaken.
The last note is yet to be played,
The last etching is yet to fade.

Why then did you leave?
Why did you choose to walk away?
Leaving me to waltz the last dance
And face the music alone.
Couldn’t you stay?
