    And you know what, thank you for giving me the idea of writing (c) and do not copy below the poem. I decided to got for it after I indeed had one of my poems copied :|

  7. I really do not know what magic you have that you simply string together some simple words and weave out something that is "fantabulous".

    I have to ask a question regarding copyright. Is it simply enough to put copyrighted below the post or you have to actually register it?? i do have some work planned and feel simply adding copyrighted may not be enough!

    Thanks for the morning dose :) :)

    cheers

  11. Reflections: Thank U Nancy. You really have been one of my biggest 'encouragers'. Much appreciate it.

    Arnab: Thank you. Appreciate your letting me know.

    Nidhi: thank u!

    Shantharam: Thank you. Different countries have different laws regarding copyright. It is complicated. If you google it you'll get all the info you seek.

    partywithneha: As flattering as it is supposed to be, to be copied, I really abhor it. I cherish individuality. Glad to 'inspire' you..Did notice that you put a graphic and a copyright symbol exactly in the same manner that I do for all my poems. Therefore I have felt this compelling urge to change my format in presenting my poems.

    Santasizing: Thank you so much.

    Ashwini: i wish you were Bon Jovi or aerosmith! :P :) Thanks for that fabulous compliment.

    Monika; thank you so much.


    Ajay: Thank you :)

  22. Hmmmm...while I read your poem, I'm imagining myself sitting in a cafe sipping espresso, staring in space and thinking. Why? I don't know :)

    Beautiful. I love your imagination.

  23. Yes, the same words can travel those distances and you are left wondering whether it is the time that give them their meaning and significance. And yes there always are actors involved too.
    And I think it was more about beautifully conveying those very thoughts, than the imagination, that is so remarkable about the poem :).

  24. Beautifully done. It feels like there is a deep story behind this. Like the characters need to speak.

    Hi Preeti, I have changed the "copyright" message on my poems. Since the copyright message is a universal symbol, I am unable to change it :|

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
