Is there anything you would like me to teach you? Tell me in my comment box!

Today, I did an Instagram live. Lots of readers interacted with me. It was an 'ask me anything' session. Readers asked questions, and I answered in real time. You can watch it on my Instagram handle for the next 24 hours.

Many readers  wanted to know, how to write a story, how to get published, how to start a blog etc. Meanwhile, I also got a mail from Skillshare asking me to start a class. Serendipitous or what? (Earlier, I was approached by Udemy too. )

I am considering it seriously. (but it will be only in the second half of the year, as I am busy writing my 10th book, at the moment). I would love to know what you would like me to start a skillshare course on? Anything that you want me to show you how to do? Do tell me in my comment box on this post. Those of you, who are reading this in your inobox, on email, please head over to my blog, and leave a comment there. That way, I will have all your suggestions in one place, and it will give me a better idea.
I do want to create a course/class which would be useful to you, and which you would love to learn.


I myself, am doing a few skillshare courses, and I find the ones I am doing  wonderful. One is a drawing class by Yuko Shimizu and the other is a sketchbook class by Ohn Mar Win. I am also doing another one on Urban sketching by Juila Henze.  I have also saved many more classes. (What can I say? I am a huge nerd and I love learning).

You can choose whatever classes you like. ! The whole idea is to find something that appeals to you. Do it, only if you find value in it and one which suits your skill sets. (Please don't do the  above classes just because I am doing them. I don't earn any commission for it!)

Alright folks, I am off to read.  But before I go, I thought I would share my today's sketch with you.




Nice? :) I was pleased with it too.

Don't forget to tell me in my comment box, about what you would like me to do on skillshare.

See you again tomorrow!

  1. So many things to learn from you mam. But if I have to pick something then it would definitely be a course on writing novel which gives insights specially on structuring the novel into chapters. I feel struck here. Any book suggestions that covers this aspect mam or may be a tip or two from you for the time being!

    That painting of apple is amazing mam.

  5. Hello Madam, I think you must do a course on "Time Management".
    The best thing about your blog is that I learn something new now and then. Honestly, I have never heard about skill share and Udemy. (May be, I am living under some rock). I checked both the sites and was amazed!
    Thank you so much for being an inspiration to many!

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:

  Tell me in comments, what you think about this!
   Super excited about it and waiting to hear from you.

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…
