  1. Hahah... That was an easy one.... And for the list I am sure it will help me give my best... As to my part of the story I believe it is very important to be oneself.... There is no point in wanting to be somebody else....

  2. You can do it!
    You may feel hopeless right now, but the tide always changes.
    Meet people face to face.
    Spend time alone.
    There are many ‘attention seekers’. Ask if they deserve yours.
    Your creative energy has to be harnessed.
    Nourish your soul as well as your body.
    Meditate.
    I cracked it already, thank you for sharing these awesome tips.

  3. Mam
    I don't think so 50 reason

    Like you write from heart then ur writing connects with readers

    Blogging is not place where fix rules are apply

    Real writers do write the because they wanted to pour oain from heart like preeti mam do after get dad dead


    It is in writer hands how to relfect their beautiful blog

    And

    Time by time write improve their english

    Main thing THERE IS NO COPYRIGHT ON BLOG BY WRITER. IT IS FREE CREATIVE WORK from blog writer.

    When writer is happy then automatically writes HAPPY MOMENTS by writer and vice versa.

    If writer wanted to give message then he or she tired best for PUBLISH THIER SOCIAL MESSAGE

    And blog marothon is tough challenge for every writer
    Blog marathon karna mazat nahi hai

    1. Yeah it was a very easy clue..!!
      You will never be able to please everybody.
      Do one happy thing every day.
      Learn to ignore.
      Do your own thing.
      You get what you send out.
      Don’t get involved in the drama in other people’s lives.
      Do one kind selfless deed for someone.
      Very important to be grateful for the genuine people in your life.

      The world wont always be kind to you.
      Things change.
      You can do it!
      Even your closest friends will hurt you at some point of time.
      You can go on long after you think you can’t.

      Spend time alone.

A Hundred Little Flames. How I signed 3000 copies!

In the past, I have blogged about how I signed 3000 copies of my previous novels, The Secret Wishlist, The One You Cannot Haveand also It's All In the Planets.
(Click on each one to read about the signing of those books)

I have also written aboutwhy I sign my books 'With Love, Preeti Shenoy'. (Do read the post)

It is that time of the year again, when I sign my pre-orders. I have just got back from Manipal, utterly exhausted with knotted shoulder muscles, numb finger tips and a feeling of wanting to sleep for a hundred years. I am bone-dead tired.

I left for Manipal, on 25th which has one of India's finest and most advanced Printing press. To reach Manipal, you have to travel to Mangalore, and then go by road, a journey about an hour and a half. My flight was late, and by the time I reached Manipal it was about 7.30 pm. I checked into the hotel, and knew I had two long days ahead of me.

The next morning, we reached the press at 9.00 am.

A Hundred Little Flames - Chapter 1

There were two completely unrelated incidents that happened on Sunday, which would change Ayan’s life forever.

1. He attended an office party thrown by his boss in a swanky uptown pub in Pune.
2.More than a thousand miles away, in a small village in Kerala, not identifiable by Google Maps, his grandfather had a fall.

On Monday morning, unaware of anything but the clock on his computer ticking, Ayan took a sip of the horrendous office tea with over-boiled tea leaves, too much milk and sugar. He had only forty-five minutes left before the meeting was to begin. Beads of perspiration trickled down his forehead into his eye, and he blinked. His brow furrowed, he sat hunched, with an ache in his neck, his fingers flying across the keyboard. He felt as though somebody was raining blows inside his head. His throat was parched despite the tea, and now his stomach began to feel queasy as well.
He regretted having that fourth tequila last night. But Randhir had insisted. You can hardly…

How social media dimishes the depth of our interactions (post 7)

One of my closest friends (we have been friends since we were 10) lost her mother last month. I have mentioned it in my earlier posts. She and I were talking just now, about how death of our loved ones leave an irreplaceable void in our lives.
Every memory now on, every thing we do, every success we achieve will always be tinged with sadness, as they aren't there to witness it. People will say things like 'Oh they are there with you, they are watching you from heaven' etc. But it's just not the same.

A loss is a loss.

One of the things I find these days is that people find it so easy to leave 'sad' emoticons on facebook. Someone announces the death of their parent, and many condolence messages come pouring in. It's easy. Click a button. Write a few words like 'stay strong', 'RIP' ,'Sorry for your loss' etc and it's done. You are off, scrolling to see the next funny video, or reading someone else's status message.

In many way…
