Hey everybody. How is the post-holiday-back-to-work life treating you? After four days of sheer laziness, where we just ate, slept, went for a movie, visited friends and relatives, it was difficult to get back into work routine. Does it really take only four days to get you off your routine? For me it did. And I felt, the days flew pretty fast.
The first day I spent with my younger son at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Museum for short. We spent a good part of the day walking in the museum and loved every moment of it. I had some other outings also planned, but seeing the tired legs of my 11-year old, I gave up. We came back to Churchgate station, bought our food and sat on the bench. It was good to rest our legs and watch the trains arrive and go. My son enjoyed it.
The second day, was date day with the husband for the Movie Ae dil hai Mushkil. Another fun day, came to an end too soon. Day three and four went faster than I could think about it. This was also the first time, we could spend some couple time on a holiday. Till now, we used to be running around the children, celebrating around their wishes and schedules. A few more years and we will start missing their childhood. My only wish is to spend more time with my 11 year old before he becomes a rebellious teen.
I see that a lot of you are participating in #NaNoWriMo and #NaBloPoMo. But, I couldn’t sign up for either due to time constraints. I’ll be there next year for sure. This month is also for the #TornadoGiveaway season 3. It sounds cool to call it ‘Season 3’. Sounds like #BigBoss Season 10. So, in this, a group of bloggers led by Rubina Ramesh and her team at The Book Club Tours (www.tbcblogtours.com) will be promoting books for free. It is a way to highlight new authors, less publicised books. It helps to bring focus to new writing and some excellent authors. I was part of the #TornadoGiveaway Season 2 and had discovered many new writers(for me) like Usha Naryanan, Shilpa Suraj, Adite Bannerjie, Paromita Goswami to name a few. This will mean multiple posts in a day to promote the authors. Bear with me and give them a look. You may discover new writing.
What do we get out of all these free promotions? Besides finding new writing, it also means tons of books for the winners. Last year I won 12-15 books as I was one of the winners and hope to be a winner this time too. That is why it is called a TORNADO.
How were the holidays for you? What are you planning for Christmas holidays? Yeah, we have started about that one already.
