A note from me to you (blog marathon post 14)




Ever since this blog marathon started, I have always taken care to compose each post carefully. It isn't as though I am writing for the sake of posting something. And of course, I don't get paid for writing here. I write here for the sheer joy of it and to connect with you. It feels great when you all write back, and tell me that you enjoy my posts.

I was also thinking this morning, how easy it is to pass a remark about the 'quality of writing ' on this blog. Those who have followed my blog will know that I do take care to see that I  always post something interesting---a poem I wrote,an inspirational post, a photo that matters to me,something amusing and things like that. It is always personal, always warm. It is never a callous post. 

If you have any requests for a particular topic, do say so in my comment box and I will consider that for my next post.

  One of the really nice things about being a best-selling author is that I get to travel to many places I have never been to, on my book tours as well as for giving talks at Corporate organizations and educational institutions. XIMB had invited me for a talk and it was superbly received.  I had shared pictures in this post.

I got a chance to visit Orissa, earlier this month. The beauty of Lingaraj temple was astounding. If you haven't yet visited it, do put in on your To-do list for 2016.

When I visited Bhubhaneshwar on my book tour, I also got a chance to visit Kedar Gauri temple, where I fell in love with  a cat that returned the favour. I always have a way with animals. The cat followed me around and even slept in my lap --which anyone who is familiar with cats will tell you is uncommon, unless the cat truly likes you.
The priest at the temple told me that there is a tradition in that temple, where if your wish is fulfilled, you gift a cat to the Goddess. That intrigued me. When I mentioned this to the journalist who was interviewing me the next day, he told me the story behind this tradition.

Come back tomorrow, if you want to hear the story of how this tradition came to be! 
Till then, keep smiling.

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!

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…
