Well, though it was only in a rudimentary stage, I'll
It was written on a series of vertical lines, read up
to down and left to right. Different kinds of
horizontal lines cut across as punctuation and as word
endings. The individual symbols (I have a c-v system,
basically) were such that I had hooks and loops and
such on the left-hand side for the consonants, which
connected to their corresponding vowel on the
right-hand side of the vertical line. I had
represented the vowels in a progression of a e i o u
(very artificial, but nonetheless true to the
structure of my conlang--cut me some slack, this is my
first time!)--a was a circle, e was two parallel
lines, i was a right triangle (easier than an
isosceles for ligatures), o was a square, and u was a
semicircle (a simplified pentagon).
But, like I said, I just love the look of it as is!
