Really sorry--I have had to remove this post as it will soon appear in a book. Making it available online would have been very unfair to my publisher who has placed so much trust in me. I hope you enjoy the other posts as much as you enjoyed this one. A heartfelt thanks for your support and understanding.Thanks for continuing to read what I write.

  2. I'm also glad Y won for you!
    That's very true. I think most of the time N wins with me, I don't want it to win, but it tends to be stronger than Y for various sorts of reasons.
    But I'm trying to nurture Y and make it stronger :)

  3. Glad Y won this time!

    In my life, N was fed alot as a child who was constantly bullied at school. I have spent all of my life since leaving school building up the Y in me. Y? Because I am worth it!

  4. Today at the clothing store.. N was clearly the winner. I came home with nothing. Maybe N will push me into loosing some needed poundage?? BUt maybe Y will tell me otherwise. Only time will tell on this one.

  6. ah ofcourse,
    mr yes and mr no.

    for me its miss yes and miss no...
    or according to my preference..miss good and miss naughty.

    Y loves me, N loves me too. It is such a hassle keeping both of them happy you know.
    The Mr no you depicted here is a bit more mean than the one I got.

    am glad Y won for you.

    for me, its complicated..
    there isn't just miss good and miss evil.
    but there is also doctor love, socrate's wannabe, stuntman extraordinare, and quite recently, the writer...

    meaning, multiple people.. good, evil, lover, philosopher,daredevil and author.
    gotta keep em all happy...
    back to your post.

    bsically showing the duality of man..similar to Dr jekyll and Mr hyde.
    And true to that story, jekyll actually loved hyde...he loved his nature, but hated the fact that he hurts others in the process, so like a fool he killed himself, and hyde in the process...if only he had realised, that he should listen to hyde at times, but keep the beast in control

    I can't ignore miss naughty for long, she just shows up suddenly wearing leather demanding that I play some prank. Regardless the consequences. She gets into a catfight with Ms good, and usually wins.

    one thing I don't get though, you mentioned N critizes you... no no..that is not n...that is your G..meaning Guilt.

    am a little disheartened though...
    you wrote my post..I was working on a similar one.. with a lot more people than just Y and N...now will have to take some time before I post..else it will seem too obvious.

  7. I love the illo with this entry? Is it your work?
    I, like Bob-Kat, dealt with a lot of bullying at school and a lot of abuse at home. Mr. N was my life-long companion and I am just now learning to tell him to sod off.
    On the days I succeed I feel so much lighter and so free.
    I think one of the hardest things for some of us to do is find value in ourselves.

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…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

Hey!

For those of you who have read 34 bubblegums and candies, this is a new version of that book. The most popular stories from that are there is this. But there are also a lot of new stories. It has five sections-- each section has stories about a certain theme. These are all TRUE stories from my life.

It's a book very close to my heart!

Here's what the back blurb says:

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
