Always wanted to write? Here's your chance!

Over the last few weeks, I have been working really hard to put together a comprehensive course on Creative Writing. Please see the video above to know the course content. Whenever I have done Instagram and Facebook live, there are several questions I get asked over and over again. I list these (In no particular order of importance)

1. Where do you get your ideas from?

2. What inspires you to write?

3. How can we improve our writing?

4. What do we do to get published?

5. I am afraid to send my manuscript to the publisher. What if the publisher steals my ideas?

6. How do you craft such believable, realistic characters?

7. Whenever we read your books, we can see the whole thing happening in front of our eyes. How do we write like that?

8. I don't get any ideas but I want to write.

9. Is it essential to keep a writer's notebook?

10. if we keep a writer's notebook, what should we write in it?

11. Is dialogue really essential in a story?

12. How do we develop a plot?

So I put together a course that addresses ALL of the above! It is a project based course which means that there is an assignment at the end of each section. There are about 17 lectures in about an hour of video lessons, which you have LIFETIME Access to.

I have shared everything I have learnt in more than a decade of my writing career.

Here's what one of my students said:

If you wish to enroll in the course, here is the link:

 I am giving a 75 percent discount to the first 100 people who join :) Just use the coupon code PREETINEW

Life is so unpredictable. Stop judging! #Sridevi

This morning I woke up to the news of the legendary Sridevi, being no more at 54. I have grown up watching her movies. She is a tremendously talented actor.

I have been reading so many write-ups about her. There are whatsapp forwards, blog posts, news reports, status updates and so much more.

What I do not understand is how people comment on her personal life. They have watched her movies, or met her at an event, or know her through 'friends of friends' etc. They talk about how she 'tried to hold on to her beauty', how she went under the scalpel, how she was stressed etc etc.
Everything about her is open game --no matter what the truth is.

I am saddened reading these discussions.

I lost my father to a cardiac arrest. He was healthy,  fit as a fiddle, had none of the age related ailments and looked so much younger for his years. He had twice the energy of someone half his age. Even on the day he passed away, he had gone for his usual 6 km walk. He was just 66.  It was…

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…


Be that man Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’ And means it. Because this thing you have going is Sacred
Be that man Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine Or coffee Or simply some time and space Where she can be herself. Because this thing you have going is Sacred

Be that man Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back Because she is too precious, too dear Some things you do not joke about Because this thing you have going is Sacred.
Be that man Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her Not because she cannot manage But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself Tell her she is strong and brave, And hold her hand Because this thing you have going is Sacred ______________________ **************© 2018 Preeti ShenoyFor more poems click here.
