Watch WRISA Write – Showcase Blog Tour

1 Aug

Hello and a warm welcome to my blog! Happy 1st day of August. This is a very special month in my family because my sisters and I were all born on this month. This year, the month of August is extra special because of the Rave Reviews Book Club’s month long blog tour dedicated to the wonderful and brilliant authors of RWISA.

RWISA stands for Rave Writers International Society of Authors and it is a prestigious organization that prides itself on including incredible INDIE authors.

For the entire month of August the various highly talented and distinguished RWISA authors will be featured and spotlighted on the blogs of many of the RRBC members. I will not be able to participate in the form of a blog post everyday because this happens to also be the month that I release my new novel, The Fall of Lilith. August 1st is actually the ‘Release Day’ for the eBook and the paperback should be available soon. So I will be very busy promoting my new book, but I will continue to support all the RWISA members as much as I can via social media – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Goodreads, Pinterest and StumbleUpon.

By Yvette M Calleiro

The written word and I

Are cherished friends,

Embracing each other’s thoughts and emotions

Like kindred spirits,

Dancing on clouds.

Bosom buddies who gossip and giggle

And gasp at all the same moments.

She and I are equals,

More than that, really.

We are two parts of a whole,

Complementing and complimenting the other,

Perfect beings.

The spoken word and I

Skirt around each other’s social circles.

We stumble around awkward pauses,

Unable to pull the perfect word or phrase

From our filing cabinet of knowledge.

Ease and grace flee without a moment’s notice.

She is more skilled than I.

She whispers her intricately woven ideas into my mind,

But her delicate strength is no match for

The hills of anxiety and the mountains of insecurity

That obstruct her path to freedom.

Before her words can reach my tongue,

They unravel into shreds of confusion,

Left unspoken.

If only the written word and the spoken word

Could meet…

They would live in perfect harmony.

But alas…

It is not meant to be,

Neither willing to leave her domain,

Each content to dance alone,

And I…

I am stuck in the middle,

Pulled in both directions,

Reveling in the comfort of the written word,

Needing the spoken word to survive.

But still I dream

Of the day when my words will intermingle

And a new love affair can be born.
