And I have been rude for not having welcomed you timely enough. Blame it on a
Christmas spent away from a computer (well, actually a room away, but a wall is
sometimes enough ;))) ). So welcome to the list!

Of course! A computer may be a tool to help you in some matters, but it will
never replace the 10% of inspiration and 90% of perspiration needed to develop
a conlang :)) .

You've come exactly at the right place! Ask any question and you'll find an
answer here (even questions that are officially off-topic often find their
answer here, so feel free to ask!! ;))) ).
If I remember correctly (I didn't keep that post :(( ), you asked later about
online grammatical sketches of natlangs. In this case, I can only advise you
http://www.yourdictionary.com/grammars.html, a list of links for plenty of
online grammars of very different languages. Moreover, this list is regularly
updated (they've just added a grammar of Chechen as I see it right now ;)) )
and contains some not that common languages. So it's a must see for any
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
