13 things.Sunday Stealing.(blog marathon post 14)

Thought I would do a fun post today for the blog marathon. And hence I decided to do a Sunday Stealing:


1. Outside my window… 

is a large expanse of space, a tiny portion of which houses a small organic vegetable garden, currently canopied under a moonlit sky littered with millions of twinkling stars.

 2. I am thankful… 
for the people currently in my life, for my ability to write and connect with a lot of people, a beautiful family, a lovely home, and all of you--who read me.

 3. In the kitchen… 


You can do many other things other than cooking. ;-)


 4. I am wearing… 
 A happy feeling that comes from a day well spent.

 5. I am creating… 

A new novel and it is almost done!

 6. I am going… 
nowhere when it comes to my good friends. Am always there for them.

 7. I am reading… 
three books at the moment, 2 fiction (both romances by British authors) and one non-fiction.

 8. I am learning… 
that sometimes a little distance is a good thing.

 9. I am pondering… 
over whether you will like this post or not!

 10. A favorite quote… 
Many many! You can see the stuff that appealed to me here.

 11. One of my favorite things… 
A cup of strong black coffee

 12. A few plans for the rest of the week… 
Intend to attend the Independence day celebrations, and also to go on a day picnic over the weekend.

 13. A peek into my day…


Typical day goes this way: Call mom. Chat up for 15-20 minutes, sometimes more. Switch off phone. Meditate. Write. Rest. Write. rest. Write, write. Kids come back from school. Cook them a meal, spend time with them, talk to them. Write some more.

A new post tomorrow. This completes day 14 of blog marathon!

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…

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!

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…
