Wishlist Wednesdays-- Results and special mentions

Hi all!

Here are the results and special mentions of all the Wishlist Wednesdays, as promised.

It was extremely hard to pick just one post as 'winner'! To my mind, all were winners. I did read all the posts (some links were irrelevant links!), and Westland in association with me, have chosen the following.

I do hope all of you enjoyed these writing prompts.
I got many mails asking me to continue these writing prompts even if there is no 'prize' or winners chosen.

I will definitely try to but I cannot promise! Right now my schedule looks packed tighter than the number of people crammed into the general compartment of a Mumbai local train :)

I had an amazing experience at the Taj Literature festival in Agra where I was in conversation with the very renowned  Prahalad Kakkar.  I shall blog about that soon.

Meanwhile--cheerios, toodles and enjoy reading the links posted here!

Have a great day!

Much love!
Preeti.

ps: People who have got the book--please mail me your postal address with phone numbers and Westland will courier your copies to you! Send it on ps(at) preetishenoy(dot)com

      The entries were selected by a panel and not by me, individually.
      I did read the post. Nicely expressed.

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:

   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…
