I think that's wonderful. Doesn't the existence of a conlang closely related to
yours add to the fun? Shortly after I had started Wenedyk, I was quite excited
when I found out that B.P. Jonsson was simultaneously working on another
Slavo-Romance language, Slevanjek. Now their are neighbours in Ill Bethisad.
I find it very interesting to see what another conlanger does with the same
idea. And you will always see that there are a lot of differences between the
language, no matter how closely related they are. Just compare Kerno, Brithenig
So I would say: seize the opportunity! ;)

Okay, I admit that comparing Euroclones is less interesting, but luckily, you
two languages are far from that.
