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

When You Get the Rejection Letter

Rejections, after Lauren Elma Frament

 

In a year of taking a break from submitting, I almost forgot how tedious sending your work to publications can be. You put blood, sweat and tears in revising your work to death before sending it out, and boom! You get the big “no”.

Sending my pieces to lit. journals had come in small blessings, usually unexpected. There were times my pieces fitted the theme of the journal and I got the boot. There were times I would cry and question if I should write at all, some I didn’t care.

Which is to say, you shouldn’t question whether you’re a good writer or not, there’s plenty of journals worldwide. It’s one of the scenarios where you have to push yourself. It’s not going to be easy–it’s really frustrating to be honest, but it’s part of the journey being a writer.
