the word "conlang"

Some analogical stuff that occured to me:
to write
to compose
to conlang

to write [book X]
 (e.g. Tolkein wrote _the Lord of the Rings_)
to compose [piece X]
 (e.g. Schubert composed _Die Forelle_)
*to conlang [conlang X]
 (e.g. *Christophe conlanged  _Maggel_)

"to conlang" seems to be intransitive.

person who writes a book = author/writer
person who composes music = composer
person who creates a language = conlanger

person who wrote [book X] = author of X/?? writer of X
person who composed [piece X] = composer of X
person who created [conlang X] = ?? conlanger of X
