Your chance to get published! 'Write India'

Hi there,
How have you been? My last post was from Goa, where I had been struggling for Internet connectivity and I had said I would share some pictures.

After I came back, I go caught up like crazy in finishing up next book. (Yes!! It is done! I am euphoric!) By then, it seemed too late to share the vacation pictures. If you want to see one of them, I have posted it on my FB page. (click to view)


Remember sometime back I had told you all about an ad that I had shot for?

Well this is what it is about!!

 Write India" is your chance to make your dreams of getting published come true. Eleven authors (Amish, Chetan Bhagat, , Preeti Shenoy, Ashwin Sanghi, Ravi SubramanianTuhin Sinha, Ravinder Singh, Durjoy Datta, Madhuri Banerjee, Jaishree Misra and Anita Nair) are working alongside the Times of India to find eleven budding writers. The eleven short stories selected will result in a book published by the Times of India. To participate log on to http://www.toi.in/writeindia

  3. Mam its so nice of you and TOI to give aspiring ones a gateway but isn't writing a self art. I mean how can an author write on your thoughts and visions. Just shared it, i know even you would've liked to write on the characters you've given birth too :). I am very happy by your wishes only to make my dreams come true :):)

    1. Kindly note that I am only a participant in this just like you. It is TOI who has come up with all terms and conditions. And you are more than free and welcome to give birth to your own characters and approach publishers with your work!
      This is a contest and it is TOI who will make the selection of qualifying entries and send some to me ANONYMOUSLY, from which I will pick. So I will directly not have a say in the matter nor will I be able to influence outcome.
      Good luck!! :)

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:




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


No! Researchers have found that information is best retained when given out in short chunks and then you put to use what you just learn. So as per the b…

Love a Little stronger. Preeti Shenoy's next book releases on April 27th!

Hey!


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:

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…
