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!

    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 …
