Too much of a good time

Sometimes, you discover that there indeed exists such a thing, as having too much of a good time! It’s a bit like eating chocolates and ice cream every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I am talking about my holiday.


It was great, terrific, wonderful. But at the end of it, I did long for my own bed, my home and my time to myself.
It was nice to take a break—but equally terrific to be back.

The sea was lovely. Beckoning. Alluring. Mesmerising.

Could have stared at it for many more days without getting bored. But I wanted to come back.

    Sk:Start a blog.Start a blog.Start a blog!! bTW these pictures were clicked from my friend's apartment, not my brother's.She too stays right opposite the sea.

    Misti: Juhu is very clean now.They have shifted all the paani puri stalls etc.Every morning a huge cleaning process goes on. Worli still leaves much to be desired.Buti guess it depends on where one chooses to look.You can either look at the dirt--or simply see the sea :-)

  14. Welcome back!

    Now, if you could eat chocolate for every meal of the day while AT the beach...that would be something!

  15. Ahhhh... I could stare at the sea for many a day too, and never get bored. Mesmerizing describes the beauty of the sea quite well. :)

    But yeah, nothing is quite so comforting as being home.

  16. This looks so beautiful.
    When I was growing up the beach was very close to my house and I would walk there every day. You could hear the ocean waves from my bedroom window. I so miss the ocean.

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…
