many on this list seem to have achieved, I conlang for

that can be assembled and re-assembled -- both for the
purpose of aesthetics and of usefulness. Deep inside,
I also do it because I hope (quite unrealistically,
may I add) that someday I could imprint upon the world
"my language" -- one which is both visually-beautiful
as well as more precise that the clumsy natlangs.
