Submitted the CSL paper today. I'm dissatisfied with it, but I found myself unable to see clearly what I needed to fix. In that way paper-writing is reminiscent of the way I experience my own inadequacies in typeface design. I can look at a font and be like "urgh this just doesn't look natural" and get as far as realizing it's probably a problem with the spacing (analagously in a paper I realize it needs more examples or just magically to be clearer somehow) but not know which parts are actually wrong: a round of tweaking in such a high-dimensional space can sometimes just leave it differently uncomfortable.
