Update

Hello everybody,

I know I haven’t been on here as much, but I’ve been taking a break since I went back to school this semester, and of course working on top of that. Plus, I have been looking into other creative projects that’s been preoccupying my time, so prepare to see some new stuff.

Also, I’ve decided that I’ll be deleting some of my old poems on here. Everyday my writing is changing and growing with me. I just…don’t care about them enough to keep them. Hope you understand.

 

sincerely,

To’Wednesday Sibley/ Day Sibley

What is Draconic Astrology?

Tropical astrology, mostly practice in the west, is a seasonal based system that focuses on the characteristics of one’s personality. Unlike its eastern counterpart that follows the constellations of the stars.

Sidereal astrology, also known as eastern/ Vedic astrology, not only looks at the personality of the individual, but it can also predict sources for your outcome. If you’re into that.

Why YOU Should Support Authors With Small Businesses

Day Sibley

So I recently came across this post while I was browsing through my Facebook, and thought whoever was thinking about writing their own book should know this. Can’t keep all the information to myself, now can I?

Authors are not rich. In fact, most make less than $10,000 a year. Being an author is a SMALL BUSINESS. If there are fifty reviews, Amazon lists a book in its newsletter and other promotions (also boughts). Reviews are the easiest way to say “thank you” to an author and tell their publisher to produce more books. Reviews can be short: “I Liked It”. It’s the number of reviews that matters the most.

New Beginnings

Hey everybody,

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything but a lot has been changing for me; with school, my job and who I surround myself in my space. As you get older there are some old ways, you abandon, that is one of the beautiful things about growing as a person. No, I won’t ever diminish what happened in my past, but that doesn’t mean I can’t move on from it. It made me who I am as an individual and I can only hope to be better.

For starters, one of my best friends and I will be working on a written project, so I can’t wait for you guys to read it. Also, I’ll be going by Day Sibley now. I have been debating the [pen] name for a while now, I feel like I’m coming into my own and so is my work. It’s kind of hard to explain, but in the meantime, I’ll definitely keep you posted on my new works.

sincerely,

Day Sibley

Building Poetry Communities on WordPress.com

Lately, I’ve been spilling with ideas left and right. I’ve always wanted to start my own literary journal and open mic show. On top of creating a microblogging/social network website for writers all over the world, that way you can not only share your work but information on writing too.

The WordPress.com Blog

As we’re entering the final week of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) in the US, we want to celebrate all the wonderful poetry-centric community projects here on WordPress.com.

The sites we feature today — like many others we follow and love — make an important point. We may all write on our own, but it’s only when we join a community of other writers and readers that our voices are truly heard.


Keeping it local

Some of the tightest-knit poetry groups are bound by a shared space, where writers know not only each other’s work, but also each other’s face. Over at Poetdelphia, Philly-based poets share poems, announce readings and other events, and celebrate community members’ achievements.

Three Questions for To’Wednesday S.


SO: How has blogging expanded your ability to express yourself?

Say what you mean and mean what you say.
—proverb

TS: As a child, I was rambunctious and from my pre-teens and now I grew reclusive. This was largely impacted by my anxiety and depression. However, in my writing, I am loud! I want the readers to feel something, whether they agree or not, and blogging has allowed me to do so. Whatever you put online can never be erased, there’s always a way to retrieve it, and that taught me how to utilize getting my message across.

SO: Do you find that your online, social interactions with people are far different than those you experience on a day to day basis, face to face? If so, how are they different?

TS: Depending on the audience who’s reading, I can be perceived as an intellectual, humanitarian or a Kanye West [laughs]. I learned online you can’t go wrong with going into detail—at the same time leaving room for people to figure it out as well. Broad statements are left to open interpretation. In person, people tend to see that I mean well and I’m either speaking from experience or sharing knowledge. So, I’m trying to find the medium of people knowing my intent isn’t antagonistic at all—I just want people to know what’s going on in their surroundings outside their bubble, and mine too.

SO: Do you feel that the collective small positive actions of a large group of people can significantly affect or even counter a large negative act by one person?

TS: It depends how the interpretation of the message is getting across, sometimes you gotta find new ways to achieve that. Then there are other times when the other party just doesn’t want to listen. Simple as that, either by ignorance or a powerful presence of negativity. Where there is a positive there’ll be a negative too.

Untitled Sixty-six

 

Today it rained in Vegas
aside from the floods
the city looks beautiful like this.
I don’t know why
but my mind keeps racing back to my childhood.
I remember
not eating in front of homeless people
unless I could share my food with them.
I used to love pigeons
now they make me sick.
I wanted to save the world to
but then I grew up.
How awful.
