My 20+ years of conlanging have been largely driven by a desire to
create a perfect language (where 'perfect' = optimally satisfying
a set of personally chosen but relatively explicit design criteria).
If I did not have such a wild ambition, I'm not sure I would conlang,
since any less ambitious project would be so outshone by the
magnificence of English.
