  4. Hi Preeti,
    All my friends and family knows this, and today I have to Say this to you ..From the day, I have read the book, “Life is what you make it" and then Started following you on FB, your virtual home (Blog) and all your other books, I have wished just one thing; I wish I could be like Preeti Shenoy. She is special in all ways.
    Her prompt respond to my first post on her FB Fan Page, and then I followed her FB fan page to witness how humbly she responds to everyone who connects with her. But at the same time, she stands for herself very firmly and made things very clear on what she can take and what she will NOT. That is a really brave and inspiring act which has taught me to say a firm 'No’ to any one for anything that I do not feel is good for me and trust me it has made lots of difference to my life.
    I loved living the life of Ankita ,Nisha and Diksha . It made me realize that life is not all bed of roses but is still livable and one should live it to fullest. Her blog is like a window to her life .I have read each and every post of it and enjoyed it thoroughly. I have wanted to write comment on each post but then have been reluctant to do so many times as her fans would have already written it before. And I get short of words to express myself.
    I love the way she look, the way she is so expressive and caring for her family and always give me a feeling..’Oh, I will do the same when I become a wife/mother. :) ‘And I love her beautiful house full of books, her kitchen that she have blogged about once, her balcony makeover, her lovely green garden(not just in Bangalore but every where She had stayed), her card , her dog..I can just go on.. I love absolutely everything about her. My favorite are all her post tagged under ‘Mama Moments’.
    I will always cherish the time I spend with her at her Chennai book launch. When I hugged her, all I could say was “Oh My God!! “.
    P.S On this day and every day I just want to say a big thank you for being there in my life like a pole star. I am so glad that I know you. You are an angel to me.
    Loads of love and best wishes,
    Nitu

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!

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:

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…
