Day 5, Seven days of positivity

Join the  7 days to positivity on Facebook as we can keep continuing the positivity there even after this experiment ends.

Here is what people have been saying about it
Sucheta Tiwari said
 This is a really great initiative. Much better than regular "self help" stuff (which is pretty run the mill, and frankly, da-uh, boring!), this is practical and actually works :)

Nice initiative Preeti. These postive feelings/thoughts.....even after months when somebody happen to see....they would read and relate atleast fewer things which they did not realize or record.... what positivity they spread for the day.

Today's 5 things I am grateful for:


1.My new pair of high-heels :) I totally dig high heels (have a few more pairs) and wear them every chance I get :P





2. This guy in my life :)






3.My ability to draw life like portraits









4.My ability to create stuff (I made this doll from a wooden peg)





5.  Always dogs and children gravitate to me :P I feel sooo good about this. This is just a stray that I am petting.


What a show off post this is :P
But fact is I do feel grateful for these things and where else can I show off but on my blog :P ?

Thank you for indulging me!
Have a great weekend folks


and let me tell you once again this positivity thing really works! :-)

  5. Its great to show off on your own blog, glad you did it :)

    Really nice post, reminds me of a hymn from school - Count your blessings. Sometimes we forget the good things that we have and focus on the negatives, just simply listing down a few brings so much happiness and joy and in front of them the negatives just fade out.

    This positivity experiment is such a great idea. Its something very practical and makes one look beyond that 'little black dot' as you say.
    And it is working! :D

Ten Reasons why you should attend a book launch by your favourite author. No.9 will delight you!

Why should you attend book launches? Here are ten GREAT reasons! :)


1. You get to hear the author and know what their personality is like when they are not writing.




2. You learn something about 'behind the scenes' that went on in a book.





3.You can ask them questions.





4.You learn something new. (most of the time!)






5.You are showing your love to the author by turning up.





6.You can discuss what the author spoke about with your friends.





7.You will be a a part of a fun event.




8.You can take selfies to post on social media.





9. You discover new books! (what can be a  better reason that that?)




10. It is a thousand times better than watching a movie (which you can always catch later!)



For those of you in Bangalore, come and meet me today(5th May) at Sapna Book House, Koramangala where we launch my new book

  Love a Little Stronger.


The launch of Love a Little Stronger, and a picture for you :)

I have just come back from the launch of Love a Little Stronger. It was a fabulous event, and I am so overwhelmed with the massive turnout, and the love that my readers showered on me. One of them (Madesh) got me a lovely gift too! He gifted me a framed photograph of my family ! (a picture which I had posted on Instagram). A very cherished gift indeed. Thank you Madesh!

Here are a few pictures from the launch:

I was in conversation with Arup Bose, who heads Srishti along with Mr.J.K.Bose.


 The stage, all set for us.
 The fabulous crowd.

My readers--it was a full house.
The interaction was fun! We laughed a lot, chatted a lot and really had a great time. Everyone who came to the launch said so and I was happy to hear that.

I have posted more photos on my Instagram stories  and I will be sharing many more photos on my Facebook page tomorrow.

 This is  the gift which my reader Madesh gave me:



I feel very blessed and grateful to have such lovely and wonderful readers. A big thank you …

May drawing challenge! A story of two portraits.

Hi all,

I have been working non-stop for many many years now. My first book was published in 2008, and I have had one book release every year, since then. This year, I am having TWO book releases. I typically work for about 10-12 hours a day! Sometimes, even more.

If you have been following my updates regularly, you will know that have just had a book release.. Love A Little Stronger, and the first reviews have been great! Please do click on the link and read the reviews!

I traveled to Singapore, earlier this month, to spend time with my children, who both go to college there. But just before I left, I sent off the entire manuscript of my NEXT book, which will be out in September, this year! I was working for about 16 hours a day, just before I left. All I could think of was the book. I was lost in that world.

So now, I am taking a massive break. I am doing a lot of art. I am taking some amazing courses (on Skillshare). I am also teaching creative writing. I am enjoying the assignmen…
