Five rules to get over someone


Rule no.1: Move on (and while you are at it, cultivating a new hobby which you are really passionate about helps)

Rule no.2 : Move on. (and while you are at it, making a brand new friend helps)

Rule no. 3: Move on. (and while you are at it reading A LOT helps. Don't allow the mind to be idle for even five seconds, lest it goes racing to depressing thoughts. Use the time to read good books. There is so much waiting to be learnt in them, especially on heartbreaks ;-) )

Rule no.4 : Move on (and while you are at it find one thing to do in the day, which gives you immense joy)

Rule no.5 :Move on  (and if you have been doing the 'while you're at it stuff' you don't need this rule as you would have already moved on)

Good luck!

(accept it hurts and sometimes, it is indeed okay to hurt. We all go through it and emerge stronger and meet someone better eventually, though at the time of going through it, it definitely does not seem so)

  8. Yes, I agree with you. I moved on something ( not someone ) just be letting all my tears out and till I was not left with one drop, and was on finding new job again,

    I moved on making brand new novels as my best friends,

    I moved on by cultivating cooking as my hobby by making delicious cuisines for family,

    I moved on by engaging myself doing some or the other thing at home, changed the look of my mom's kitchen ( it helped a lot of her energy while finding things)

    Now I even forgot that SOMETHING has ever happened to me. And I am just moving on with a wide smile ;)

    Thanks for this post! Like always boosted me even more. :)

  10. Methinks the shortest n most effective way of getting over someone is by getting into a rebound relationship... it's short, sweet and so totally worth it.. :D

    been working for me since '87.. big fan of it :)

Latest book from Preeti Shenoy: Wake Up Life is Calling. Watch the trailer HERE

Hi!

How have you been?

There are just 14 days left for the release of my new book Wake Up, Life is Calling. The trailer above tells you in brief about the book. Do watch it!


The story starts where Life is What You Make it ends, when Ankita fights her way out of a mental hospital and emerges successful. I had researched a lot for writing it. It was a very hard book to write and it took a lot out of me. I never thought I would come back to write a sequel. But, the character was not done with me yet!
Eight years later, (and nine more books in those eight years!) here I am, coming back to Ankita’s story. Though the first book ends with an epilogue, which tells the reader what happened fifteen years later, there are no details of how Ankita coped. How did she integrate back into daily life? Wake Up, Life is Calling is the sequel, which reveals this. It is about all that Ankita went through when she came out of the mental hospital and went back to college. Would the disorder strike again? What d…

Why I believe in book marketing and a mini-painting giveaway

Hello!
How have you been doing? How is the summer treating you? :)

I am exhausted most of the time. I am not sure if it is because of the very hectic  promos (Oh, I have been working so so  hard!)  of my new book Wake Up Life is Calling (a sequel to Life is What you make it) or whether it is the heat which is sapping  me.



When it comes to book marketing--there are two schools of thought. Some writers believe that the  marketing is not their job. They believe that their job ends when they send off the manuscript after the final  the edits. They think it is primarily the publisher's responsibility.

Marketing is indeed hard work and most writers (including me) detest it. If you ask me, I would rather sit in my cocoon and start writing my next book. (as that is what I enjoy most)

But here's why I do it.

1. Being on the bestseller charts does matter to me. Now while content is the single most important thing, good content alone won't help. Marketing is essential. My book Life …
