Chennai Launch of Why We Love The Way We Do.(Blog mararthon post 17)

So it was a really hectic day for me today.
The day started with my Interaction at IWA. I met women from Japan and US, and some other countries.I was told that my session was great!

Here are a few pictures:
 The IWA president opening the Interaction. In conversation with me is Sandhya Sridhar, who founded Page Turn Publishers. She is also an author. She conducted the session superbly and it was a pleasure interacting with her. Do check out Page Turn books. They are lovely little romances---something like desi version of Mills and Boon. I have just started reading Page Turn books and am liking them.

Here is another picture of me and Sandhya. We hit it off well!




 Signing the  books and interacting with the IWA  members, after the session.

In the noon, I had a meeting with my publishers, who took me out for a lovely lunch at the Taj. We had a wonderful time.

In the evening, I again had an event at Starmark, Avenue Mall. The crowd was large, the interactions were superb, and once again I was told it was a fabulous session. Here are pictures.


Interacting with the readers and signing the books.

See the crowd. There were easily over a hundred people as many were standing (not captured in the pic)



Posing for the media
After that I met one of my closest friends. I have known her since we were both 10 ! I feel blessed for that friendship. She has never missed an event of mine in Chennai. We went out and had a GREAT time.

Am exhautsed now--but very very happy!
Feeling blessed.
(I think we should be grateful for all the things going right in our lives)

Till tomorrow!

  1. Hello Ma'am, i've been following your blogs from a long time, it's just that I have subscribed your blog post to receive it via email and that's the reason I don't get time to comment, though I know a comment feels good, it's tells that people do read and liking what you do. So I just want to appreciate you for your work. I wish you luck for your next book which I read you have finished writing. Also I have got one question for you. May I know how do you main a journal?? Do you maintain an electronic journal using Applications like OneNote etc, or you do that on a paper diary, completely offline. I am fully sure that the paper diary is a better option but in a life of hassle, writing something takes a great amount of time, plus, it's been like an eternity to touch a pen :D feels very inconvenient to writing through Pen. I wanted to know how do you maintain the journal, if it's via paper or a laptop. Thanks a lot for so many good thoughts. I was deleting old emails and found this like you have shared http://elitedaily.com/life/power-of-keeping-a-notebook/1067990/ . It got me thinking that I should also start to document my life. :) Take care.

  2. Dear Iqbal,
    Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. And telling me that you appreciate my work.
    I have two journals. One is an electronic one.
    The other journal I have is the old fashioned pen and paper one. I have a collection of lovely fountain pens.
    I will blog about my journal and pen collection sometime.
    Have a great weekend.
    And yes--do start that journal!
    Love
    Preeti

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!

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…
