Cupcakes, Conversation and Chai



You are invited :)
 It is going to be a discussion on importance of friendship, modern day relationships, marriages, and how different living in a big city versus living in a small place is.


There is going to be Chai and cupcakes and of course conversation too.
Event is open to all but it will be really nice if you confirm, as Vani  Mahesh of easylib is making all the arrangements to see that everyone has a great time.

Those of you have read the book (and the acknowledgement section) will know Ramesh of Business Musings was one of the first to read the manuscript, even before I submitted it to the publishers.
I was delighted when he confirmed today that he will definitely be there.

Am looking forward to meeting you all.

Meanwhile, I have been making cards.

Sharing a few I made recently. (The people who ordered them as well as the recipients were delighted!)














And this is a card which was made to order,  for a little girl who turned seven:





Liked them? :)
Well, you know what to do! :)

  5. All your cards are beautiful, preeti. Especially like the cutie doll one. I make some too once in a while, but more than making them, the delight on the recipient's face make them all worthwhile!!!! It puts a beautiful smile that comes straight from their heart. I can imagine how yours must have felt for them.
    Hugs,
    Gayu

  6. Preeti I really adore your fervor towards life but however I avoid I am becoming reluctant to life ... I find nothing but a dark gloomy person inside me...I may find little help with your perspective.. I find life all useless and a drag and what puzzles me is the fact i don't know why ?

  7. I have noticed the changed appearance of your blog today only, its nice. In fact, now it looks more organised. The cards that you display have a lot more meaning than being just a card. Its a symbol of attachment, love, dedication, efforts, perfection and lot many worth learning things.
    Thank 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…

Three powerful things every aspiring writer must do.

On Saturday, I got a message from my publisher.
'Check the Hindustan Times today; We're at No.5 and No.8,' he said.

I checked immediately, and my heart leapt up in joy.  TWO of my books were indeed among the highest selling fiction books in the country. My publisher also sent me this nice creative!




 I felt very happy, because it's not easy for a book to climb into the charts MONTHS after it's release. In the case of Life is What You Make It, it is TEN YEARS since  I wrote that book. Having the books there was validation that people find comfort and joy in my writing.

I have grown as a writer, with every book I have written. I do work very hard at my craft. I am constantly trying to write better. I write every single day---although everything is not for publication. I have a desk full of notebooks and diaries which I have filled over the years. I have my gratitude journal, my daily journal, my story ideas, my blog posts, my emails, my one minute writing exercises. …

The number one essential to be a succesful writer.

What is the most important thing, a writer must do, in order to be successful? I am often asked this.

Now 'being successful' itself can be defined in several ways. If you are an aspiring writer, I would consider the first step of success as completing a manuscript. If you have managed to sit down and have completed writing a book, you are successful, whether you have managed to find a publisher or not. You  have successfully crossed the first step.


The other question I am usually asked is about my art. One of the things I do, in between my writing is my art. I am asked questions like how it helps my writing, and whether a writer should have other forms of creative expression, other than writing.

I don't think a writer truly needs to have any other form of creative expression, if they are not inclined! If you are passionate about writing and you have no other creative pursuits, that is perfectly okay. To say that one must have other creative pursuits apart from writing…
