The second part is, did any of you "evolve" your scripts? Meaning, if you
derived it from another script, did you write out the  glyphs several
times to get a descendant script? And, if you made your own from scratch,
dod you make a "proto-script", and then evolve the letter forms from that?
Or did you guys just keep writing out characters until you found a look
you liked?
