The CUTEST plan in the world!

I found this in my daughter's room long after she had left for school. (She is eight.)
This was too good to not share!








She has made a plan which  also shows a map from her room to our bedroom. If you look at it carefully (click to enlarge), you will see that she has drawn herself  and her brother , right at the bottom and she has labelled it 'us'.

She has drawn me (and I love that luxurious mane of hair, like a Lion's which she has given me. :-)) and my laptop is very prominent, right next to me. In fact it is drawn larger than me! (Sigh--she sees the laptop as an inseparable extension of her mom!)

The best part of the plan was its strategy and the minute details including footsteps on the 'path to be taken', that  she has drawn, that includes a place to hide! :-)

And the absolutely super part which makes me grin wider than a Cheshire cat are the lines
"Before you enter, see that pop is not there. Then slowly walk in, talk to mummy and come back." :-)

Have you ever seen a cuter plan than this? :-)

  39. The story of my life. Even my daughter wants to ensure I am not around - regular villain I seem to be. ha but that I am. Every time she tip toes in I ensure I say caughtya much to her disgust. And guess what its not me who sends her back to her room. Its her Mom. I know the philosophy that the more you push them away the more close they want to be. However, do not have the heart to do that even though I don't mean it so just grab her and then she gets wild - what does one say about women. Sigh

  47. Can't believe how awesome kids are getting to be these days. And girls are just so precious :D. Just visited a friend's 1 and 1/2 yr old today, and the kid was like a bundle of energy, trying to pronounce everything she had just heard, and giving us these adorable "puss-in-boots" look whenever we weren't paying enuf attention to her..heheh.

    And oh, the mummy with the luxurious mane of hair, and the laptop next to her is so spot-on! This kid rocks :).

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:


You also get access to an EXCLUSIVE facebook writing club, which is a CLOSED group.
3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when gi…

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

Hey!


This is the cover of my next book! It will be releasing on April 27th of this month. The cover was unveiled today in a live session on facebook

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:




You can pre-order the book here: http://preeti.io/lals





  Tell me in comments, what you think about this!
   Super excited about it and waiting to hear from you.

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
