It’s Sleep is for the Weak‘s first birthday today! Hard to believe that someone I think of as such an accomplished blogger has only been ‘at it’ for that long. Josie’s writing workshop is a little piece of wonderful in the blogging world -every week she conjures up a new series of prompts and brings together bloggers from all over the shop. It’s a fantastic way of finding shiny new blogs to read, and it’s a useful exercise in writing to a brief.
I’ve lapsed recently but didn’t want to miss out on today’s celebrations so I’ve chosen Prompt 5:

It’s time to ‘do’ more, to worry less,
It’s ok to achieve, to work, to make other things work.
People won’t always like you, or what you do – but those that really count will.
People might talk, or nudge, or think you’re up yourself – let them.
They don’t know the full story, the whys and wherefores, and they don’t need to.
