Something to tell you

a few vague ideas
one good one
two hundred and fifty four sleepless nights
two thousand hours of solitude
writing
seven drafts
fourteen revisions
more writing
editing
creating
rewriting
living with characters who feel like your friends
hearing them speak to you
and agonizing when they refuse to
coaxing them till they oblige
more writing
reading it yet once more
rewriting.

Yes, you can say that the past few months have been hard for me.
Very hard.
But I am not complaining

I am happy.
And very very excited

You can guess why :)
Any guesses as to what the title will be?

Details soon!  Watch this space!
And yes--this pic is going to be the author photo:

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:


You also get access to an EXCLUSIVE facebook writing club, which is a CLOSED group.

No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when gi…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

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.

What happened when an annonymous person sent me flowers.

This morning when I returned from my walk, a pleasant surprise awaited me. It was a gorgeous bouquet of pink flowers, the very same ones you see in the picture above.

'Who has sent these?' I asked my husband.
He shrugged, ' It was there when I came back after walking the dog,' he said.

I looked for a card, and there was none. It was an anonymous mystery sender.

'I am sure you sent it, as a surprise! And you are pretending that you haven't,' I told my husband.
'No, I actually wanted to get you flowers, but I didn't get around to it. I didn't send it. Must be one of your friends,' he said.
I was puzzled. It had to be someone who knew my residential address, and  I wondered who it could be.
'Perhaps it was wrongly delivered, and it was meant for someone else,' I said.
'No chance. How can anyone wrongly deliver these flowers? It's someone who has sent it for you,' said  my husband.
I asked one of my closest friends if he had…
