Writing tips, a contest and a chat! #Campusdiaries #CD



Have you always wanted to write a story but never got the motivation to? Campus Diaries which is India's largest storytelling platform for students might just give that impetus to. They are runnin a contest where you can win prizes worth over a lakh.

Other than the fact that I would be judging the entries I have nothing to do with it :) So if you want to participate in it, head over HERE

They had interviewed me a few days back and asked me for writing tips. I maintain that I am still a learner when it comes to writing, even though I might have six best-selling novels behind me.



 I have a long long way to go and I am constantly reading up and looking for ways to improve my writing.
However, whatever I know I was happy to share. I loved the way they had presented the interview.

If you wish to read the writing tips I had to offer, head over HERE

The reason I have been a little slow in updating my blog is--you guessed it---I am working on my next book.
And it is going to be non-fiction..
and...and...and....

it is going to be something very useful to almost everyone!  It will definitely make you think, make you ponder and perhaps give you some answers.

I will not reveal anymore--you will have to watch this space.

Good luck if you are taking part in the story writing contest.
And even if you aren't you can head over to twitter tomorrow at 11.00 am, just to chat with me :)

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
