I confess I view my conlang confreres' fickleness and pampolygamy with scant sympathy and perhaps even occasionally a slight tincture of moral outrage... I believe monogamy or something close to it would help one achieve fluency, which apparently is a wonderful experience judging by the descriptions I've read -- what a great joy it is to be able to talk, think and dream in one's own language. That's the main reason why I regret spreading myself too thin. Half-baked projects that don't get fully developed can't take their creators to the jhana of fluency.
