I've been working on the same one conlang since I was 14, writing the same poem since I was 14, and with the same woman since I was 19. There's been no other poem since I was about 21, no other ab initio a priori conlang ever, and no other s.o. since 19. I am, however, a despairingly enthusiastic smoker (since 16). I am 33 now. I have tended to think of the long time spent on the poem and conlang as evidencing a reprehensible inability to bring things to completion, but it's nice to realize that it can be seen in a more positive quasi-uxorious light. --And.
