The last kilometers
I must admit: I am using that blog post to sort things out for me. You might know that I am on something which could be called “lens-making-marathon”, and as I am now working on lens #46 I feel like running the last kilometers, panting.
It is not only that there are still about 5 lenses to create – there about 50 lenses to polish up. A lot of helpful hints are coming in from the squidoo community – people are investing their time in order to go through my lenses and write down, lens for lens, what I should change and how I should rewrite them in order to change them into quality lenses.
It looks like much work to do. And my inner critic is whispering in my ear: “You won’t be able to do it. You are exhausted. It is too much for you. Your lenses are too bad. ”
And there’s my inner friend (I decided to have one – he/she is a mixture of all my virtual friends on the web) who softly touches my shoulder and says: “Don’t give up yet. You’ve got more energy and power than you know. You have done so much you haven’t ever dreamt of doing – why don’t you just believe that you can do it? Your lenses are not bad – and the hints are so helpful that you won’t need much time to follow them.”
Well, I would not have believed it but simply writing down those sentences (I hope you don’t consider me somehow going round the bend!) gave me back a lot of energy. So back I go, to the secrets of the Renaissance…
