When I began taking a sign language coures at the local community college many years ago as I learned each new sign I devised a simple pictographic glyph with the same meaning. A few semesters later, when I had become fluent in ASL I had also become fluent in my pictographic language. I used it for class notes and in my personal journal. It was kind of exciting to be able to write fluently in my pictographic conlang without the need to stop and think about how to write seomthing. I all came very naturally. I enjoyed it. --gary
