A fun meme about a lot of stuff :)

Hi there,
Its a long time since I did a 'Fun meme'. I have been doing such a lot of 'serious' writing these days (have already started working on my fourth book!) that I wanted to just do something on my blog which was fun.

So here is a meme from Sunday Stealing which appealed to me..I am doing only one part of it (It was in three parts).

1) Do you tend to hold grudges against people who have done you wrong?
Sadly yes  but only if I was extremely hurt. I do want to let go. Holding a grudge is like harboring poison in your soul. It's truly horrible to hold a grudge.

2) What is your astrological sign?

Saggitarius

3) Do you save money for anything? What?
Used to save when I was a student. I don't consciously 'save' anymore. Thank Lord.


4) What's the last thing you purchased?
Some superb DK books for my children from Pageturner Bangalore. (They have a good collection for kids)

5) Have you ever had a relationship that you realized was lust not love?
Of course! :) Don't tell satish ;-) :D

6) In a relationship?
Yes! :) Sweet Bliss! :)

7) How many relationships have you had?
Hahahaha.. Far too many to list :P Really!

8) What do you want to tell us about your day?

I learnt an important lesson today. To completely ignore those that attack you senselessly, out of jealousy mostly. Also learnt how important it is to not always take another person's advice and to listen to your gut feel.

9) Where were you yesterday?
Was at home. Did not step out yesterday.

10) Is there anything interesting within 10 feet of you?

Many things really. Books, a little wooden trinket box that my daughter made for me, my BB Bold 9900, My Ferrari cap, my silver ear rings, a bookmark I made, to name a few.

11) Are you wearing socks right now?
I am in India right now and it is summer. Need I say more?

12) What's your favorite animal?

My Dobe.



13) What is your secret weapon to get someone to like you?

Tell them I do realistic portraits and tell them a detail about themselves which I noticed. I also  slip in that I am a best-selling author. :P :D


14) Where is your best friend?
Norwich, UK


15) How did you end your last relationship end?

I did not end it. I dazzled him so much with my brilliance that he felt so inadequate and faded away. *shrug* what can I do?!  :D

16) What is your heritage?
This amazing country I am born into. Truly proud  to be Indian.

17) What were you doing last night at 12 AM?

Finishing some unfinished business. It's still unfinished. Sigh.

18) What's new?

I have been asked to write a serialised fiction by one of India's leading mags. Details soon!

19) What is the key to seduction?

Eye contact, Interesting conversation, Flirting, Wit, An awesomely intimate meal.
And if all of it does not work, try subliminal suggestions ;-)

20) What was the weirdest thing that happened to you this week?

My dog got invited to a doggie's birthday party! Not kidding. How weird is that?! :)
She did enjoy herself though. She even wore a bow! Not kidding :) Here is a pic:




21) You are walking down the street on your way to work. There is a dog drowning in the canal on the side of the street. Your boss has told you if you are late one more time you get fired. What do you do?

Of course I will save the dog. Jobs will come again. A dog's life will not. And if my boss objects when I turn up dripping wet in the office, I would push him/her into the canal as well..and tie a stone too around their neck so they can't emerge :D

22) You are at the doctor’s office and she has just informed you that you have approximately one month to live. a) Do you tell anyone/everyone you are going to die? b) What do you do with your remaining days? c) Would you be afraid?

a) Of course I would tell everyone.I would announce it on my blog, FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest--everywhere!  I would make the best of it, write a book about 'my last 30 days', get TV deals, sell movie rights etc :) Am anyway dying--might make the best of it.
b) Fulfill every wild fantasy I have ever had.
c) No--have never been afraid of dying.

23) You can only have one of these things: trust or love.
 Love ,always :) Who needs trust when you love with all your heart! :)

24) What's a song that always makes you happy when you hear it?

My English friends might want to watch this :) I always dance when I hear this :)




25) Who has your cell phone number (other than family)?

Many of my friends and a few people who I would rather have out of my life.

If you liked the meme, you can do it too! :) I had fun :)
Stay positive!
Love
Preeti

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:




3. Is it just a one-hour long video?


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

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.

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
