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!

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
