Coming off my personal success of (finally) getting a paper on the arXiv yesterday (check the footnote on the cover page), I worked through two projects that are close to being writeable or finishable. The first is a paper with Stephen Feeney (Flatiron) on the Lutz-Kelker correction, when to use it (never) and what it is (a correction from ML to MAP). The second is a document I wrote many months ago about finding similar or identical objects in noisy data. After I read through both, I got daunted by the work that needs to happen! So I borked. I love my job! But writing is definitely hard.
