Weird Questions Meme. Blog marathon post 5.

It's been quite a while since I did memes on my blog. So for today's post,  I thought I would do one  from Sunday Stealing as today is a Sunday. Besides, the questions also are different from the ones I usually get in my Interviews :) (I get tired of answering the same questions over and over! "How did you get into writing?" "Where do you get your inspiration from" "How do you manage doing so many things." "What are your future plans" "What is your book about" etc etc)

Here goes the weird questions meme  from Sunday stealing:


What is your ring size?
I have no idea! I wear three rings though. One belongs to my dad (hence a Man's ring) and one is a diamond one gifted by Satish, and the third is a kind of a stone.

How often do you wear jewelry?  
Every day mostly. But on some days, I don't.


When was the last time you consumed alcohol?  
Last evening. (and no it wasn't Vodka.).


Any big plans for the summer?  
 Summer is still a year away.


What is your favorite comfort food?  
Curd rice! I can eat it anytime.


Do you prefer broccoli or asparagus?  
 Broccoli please.



What color are your bedroom walls?  
 Pale Cream  and they have some absolutely marvelous paintings by Niall Young.

With whom do you live?  
Family..Husband, kids, dog and a guinea pig :)

Which Star Wars movie is your favorite?

I hate Star wars.

How about Harry Potter?  
 I hate Harry Potter too.

What was the last movie you saw in theaters?  
yeh jawaani hai deewani

Did you get the popcorn or candy?
Pop-corn.  I hate candy. (just realised that i seem to hate most things most people like- for instance, Star-wars, Harry Potter and Candy)

What is the most romantic text in your inbox?  
 Do people text anymore? They use only whatsapp and chaton and bbm, I thought. I don't know about 'most romantic text'  but I did get a marriage proposal on FB recently. I laughed my head off.

Have you ever played miniature golf on a date?  
Never even played normal golf. last time I played Golf was on a video game.

What’s a phrase you overuse?  
'Lissssen..you aren't listening' is something I use often which reveals a lot about how much my family actually listens when I say something. No wonder I write so many books. At least my readers listen to me. heh heh :D


Do you always use good grammar?

Only when I am writing something. In messages I use words like ain't and coz and U.

Do you have an accent or a speech impediment?  

Wrote a whole post on Accents here

What did you eat today?  

 Upma for breakfast , pav-bhaji for lunch and Chinese for dinner. I made the breakfast and dinner. Ate out for the afternoon meal.



What do you do at work?  
I dream and imagine stuff.

Do you know the rules to any sports?
I should think so. I played basketball at National level many years back. Unless of course they have changed the rules since my time. heh heh :D

Do you prefer to watch or play sports?  
Definitely play.

What is your favorite kind of hat to wear?  
If I had to wear a hat, it would be a cowboy hat.

Do you pray?  
Yes. Mostly Every day.


To whom do you pray?  
To the Universe, to the higher powers, to Lord Vishnu, To Infant Jesus, To Goddess at Chottanikara temple in Kerala, to my dad.

What is the closest mountain to your house?  

Doddabeta Mountain (8650 feet) ,which is about 197 kms from Bangalore, which is where I now live.


What size engine is in your vehicle?  
 2ZR-FE, Gasoline, 4 cylinder inline.16 Valve, DOHC, Dual VVT-i(Dual Variable) 1798 cm³ (cc)
(Oh how I love google :D )

What do you need to do tomorrow?
 Need to  walk, exercise, write, create, cook, read and try to be more happy.

  5. I sometime feel,after reading all your post and book.. I know everything about you( that a fan should know :-P ) .. But then you manage to surprise me everytime. :-) .. Its always nice to know about you. Undoubtedly a different set of question. I am sure next time someone interviews you.. They will sure get some inspiration from here:-)

    loved all your answer..

  6. Sparkle passed away peacefully in his sleep. RIP sparkle. Snowy is as active as ever.

    @Hanni: No--the ring was suggested by someone who has an awesome and a well-paying job, at an MNC. Astrology is his hobby and he is extremely good at it. He did not charge a single paisa--and hence the possiblity of 'fraud' for his benefit is ruled out completely--and yes, the ring has helped a lot.

    @Nitu: Awww..Thanks and hugs.

    @Ariel: :) Welcome to the club :)

    1. Oh Preeti. I think I wasn't clear in my last comment. I'm sorry about that. I never meant 'someone' suggested it to you to you for 'money'. What I intended to say was a little sarcastic! :) you've mentioned that you can get angry badly, so I teased asking if ur close ones suggested you wear it:) I hope there isn't anything rude in this comment, coz nothing was intended. Its just a casual comment.

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 …
