Some important things (Blog marathon post 13)

http://www.daniellelaporte.com/


Found the above visual on Facebook and it led me to check out the website (click on pic to be taken to it) and I discovered that it has some pretty amazing stuff. Little things in life which matter such a lot, yet which we brush aside in our quest for bigger cars, bigger homes, more space.

What about the space in our hearts?

That is so important. It is important to let go of the ego and tell someone how much they mean to you, if they do.
Yet, it is also important to recognise when to walk away from a relationship which isn't helping you grow.

It is important to hold on to some things and have patience.
But then it is equally important to turn you back and shut the door on things that prevent you from being the best you can be.

It is important to have great friends.
But it is equally important to spend time with yourself, in quiet solitude, enjoying your own company.

It is important to give in.
It is also important to not give up.

And if you have figured it all out, you have conquered life.

I know haven't. I revel in it's imperfections.
Grateful to have everything I do.
Happy to be able to  touch lives with my words.
Gratefulfor all that I have received.

and I think that is important too.

  2. It's all about knowing yourself and making right decisions at the right time. Sometimes you need to take such decisions whether a good one or a harsh one. Sometimes it may break hearts, but it's all for good. Atleast in a day you need to have an hour or two for yourself to think, to focus, to feel what you want to achieve.

    Mandy Hale, in her book: The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass, mentioned: "If you learn to really sit with loneliness and embrace it for the gift that it is…an opportunity to get to know YOU, to learn how strong you really are, to depend on no one but YOU for your happiness…you will realize that a little loneliness goes a LONG way in creating a richer, deeper, more vibrant and colorful YOU..!!!"

    Keep writing.. Keep Inspiring..!!! :)

  6. Thanks for the beautiful thought, Preeti! It touched my heart, because I could relate to many of the things which you mentioned in this post. As they say, we should learn to adjust to both worlds :-)

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 …
