writing about radial velocity inference

I spent work on the weekend writing in Adrian Price-Whelan (Princeton) and my paper on exact sampling for the exoplanet or binary-star radial velocity problem. In addition to the writing, we spent a lot of time talking out the experiments that we want to show in this paper that are demonstrative of the power of the method. But my main contribution today was to blow out a discussion section as fast as possible. In our paper template, the discussion section talks about the implications of the work, but more importantly what has to change if the assumptions turn out to be wrong (and they do!). I wrote fast, obeying the motto “write drunk, edit sober.”
