Is there a a natural sentence or phrase describing a state of not being satisfied?
E.LL is a writer. He has written a piece of writing recently. He thinks his work can be improved although it already seems acceptable. He never was a big fan of perfectionism, but surprisingly, that current point of perfection didn't satisfy him and he continued to modify the the piece of writing .... (These sentences has been concocted by me)
Added: consider we have three basic discrete levels of writers: ! 1)careless 2)moderate 3)perfect And also there are some other levels that lies within these three levels ! And the writer creates a piece of writing whose work qualifies him such way that he locates between level 2 and 3 which is referred to it as **that** in the above sentence.
Is there a natural way to write/speak about that? In Persian, we have a phrase , بسنده نکرد , which fits to this context completely.
Also, which one of the below quantifiers* are more appropriate in such sentences?
- that point of
- that extent of
- that degree of
- that level of
- that scale of
- that deal of
*quantifiers does not stand for its grammarian connotation, it is just a word that came to my mind at the moment.
