Push your limits. I just broke a record!




I am delirious with joy as I type this, as I have broken a record which I had set in 2012.
The highest number of words I had written in a day was 7256.
Today, I broke that record. I have just finished writing 8252 words of my tenth novel, plus about 750 words for another piece, making it a new record! I had begun writing at 7.30 am this morning, and I am calling it a day now.
Tired, exhausted, exhilarated and oh-so- contented. Those are the rewards, when you push all your limits.
Tomorrow, I go back and do it again :)
To understand what this means to me, do read the piece which I had written in 2012, and which is also on my website.

  6. Hi Preeti. Congratulations for your hard work. Your related post written in 2012 is really inspiring one. I had last commented on your blog when you had written about interview with DD channel. I had asked you a question, for which I still didnot get any reply . One more question request. Can you post a blog on why you prefer writing in laptoo vs pages/book etc.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
