Thank you all for taking part. I really enjoyed reading ALL the entries. (I even left a comment on a few)

Here is the writing Prompt for TOUCH Thursday Number 3.

Anjali is a character in the book. She has dated 6 men and rejected all of them. She is still looking for Mr.Right. She feels it is hard to get what she is looking for.

Her friend Sriram Surve, would say the same about women--that it is hard to understand women.

If you are a guy, write  3 things (or more!) that you really want from women.

If you are a woman, write 3 things (or more)  that you really want from men.

Please carry the TOUCH banner if you want Westland to consider your entry.

Results will be declared next Thursday.

    3 things or more i really want from men:-
    1)He should miss me as if i was the one he could not have..
    2)TOUCH me like i was a newborn or a flower of spring or a butterfly's wing..
    3)THE feeling of love should be like maybe one of us is going to die tomorrow .
    4)ONE fight or ONE day of not meeting or anyONE should not come in between us.
    5)YOU & I should not be the case..It should always be "WE".
    6)CANNOT should'nt be the word between us. Everytime it should be CAN do(anything) for YOU.
    7)HAVE friendship,understanding,honesty,trust and attraction even at the age of 70 between us...

  16. Touch Thursday No.3

    The three things I want are

    1. Should be a Respectful person in the society because the one who gives respect gets respect.
    2. should accept me whatever I am. I have come in this world with a name and a fame, and its worth more than anything.
    3. Should listen to me and try to understand what I m trying to explain. Should not take decisions in a single go and try to understand the circumstances.

  17. Posted :-)

  18. Fun to post on the age old, ongoing discussion.. As John Gray says, Indeed, "Men are from Mars Women are from Venus"..

  19. posted---feeling great--- :) :)

  20. Hello mam following are the things ,which I want that my Mr Right should possess…..
    First of all I want that he should respect his ownself,because the person who respect & love his ownself can only give this things to others that’s what I believe.He should respect me for what I am, he should respect my thoughts,my opinion,& most important thing is that he should respect my parents & treat them with lots of love and affection,because whatever I am today is because of them and they are the first priority in my life & I really love them like any other mama’s & dyada’s girl. 
    2) Trust:-
    The relationship of any two persons is like a rubber band,holded by two of them,if any of them ignore or give up to balance it then that rubber band quickly will hurt the other trust play a very important role in any relationship to balance it from both the sides.In future I know I will never face such situation but suppose if the time comes where no one will believe or trust me for my certain dids or because of some misunderstanding then that time I want him to seat in front of me,hold my hands,look into my eyes & say that’’I trust you,I believe in you,& I don’t want any kind of explanation from you,just get one thing that I don’t know weither your shadow will remain forever with you or not ,but I will always be there for you in every situation of your life,our life.
    I think no one can describe this word perfectly as our heart feels.Its something wonderful,its something unbelievable,its something magical,its something beautiful.Don’t know how to describe it,but I heard that various kind of people do various kind of things to show their love to their love ones,but for me in love I want only one thing from my lifepartner that’s his precious time rather than any other expensive gifts or various kind of mug-up love speeches. 
    He should give his time or make himself available for me to take a long walk at night,to enjoy the drops of first rain in monsoon,to cook surprisedly when he want to make me smile, to share a cup of coffee with me & rather speaking mug-up love lines I just want him to say that’’ I genuinely care for you and love you,don’t ever leave me alone ‘’
    This kind of love I want from my Mr.Right 

    Thank you preeti mam for making us think about such a important topic It was a nice promt and had great time while writing.

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.
3. Is it just a one-hour long video?

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:

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…
