10 day challenge.Post 4. Seven wants.


This is a part of the 10 day challenge which I started here.


Post 3 is Seven Wants.





  1. 3 holidays in Maldives each year. (Each Holiday lasting for 7 days will do :-))
  2. A  foot and body massager who/which does a super-terrific job.
  3. A Painting holiday in Venice.(Intend doing that in the near future.Satish does not know. Heh heh heh)
  4. Luxurious Spa and beauty treatments every week.(preferably on mondays so i have something to look forward to)
  5. A book writing machine. I just think and it writes out everything without my having to slog.
  6. A robot like Richie Rich’s Irona to take care of all the housework.And oh yes, while I am at it, a Butler like  Cadbury would be nice too. 
  7. A quiet place to which nobody has access but me. I want absolute silence in this space. Not a single sound. Not even a leaf should stir. It should be completely zen like—lots of light, greenery, minimalist furnishing and Ohm symbols and Buddha statues in it.
 Just realised after I wrote out the above that my wants are truly not 'unachievable' --except 5 and 6 perhaps :) 
And I do have a very zen like room full of my books and paintings and my beloved writing desk.Nobody is allowed to enter unless I allow. This is my private study, my sanctuary. Will post pics sometime.

See you tomorrow with 6 places :)

    1. That sanctuary like place sounds so amazing. A place designated to do one's likings. I think thats so so important. And I guess even more important to an author!

      I remember telling the same 5th point you wrote here, in an interview when asked about the most innovative thing I had thought up, I still remember the amused look on the interviewers' face :D

    A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

    Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


     We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

    The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
    They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

    The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

     I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

    I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


    Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


    If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

    Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

    Hi there,
    Hope you had a great Diwali!
    For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

    This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
    Today is day 4.

    Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
    Ayan finds it annoying.

    Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

    Tell me in comments!
    A new post tomorrow.
    Love
    Preeti
