Well i'm probably the odd one out here, because I was never inspired to
start conlanging because of Tolkien, partly because I still haven't even
read any of his books.
Same for me. I've never read Tolkien.
I got interested when I read an interview with Boudewijn about Denden.
Thought it was weird. So I phoned him an asked him about his languages.
I starteed to feel goo dwhen I read about what he said about paintings:
same people like nature so good, that they make pictures of it
same people like languages so good, they start making grammars.
So I thought: let's have a start and made up a language that had all cases
I knew of. Later on it became a language that suited my conworld.
Now I am on this list for some time and conlanging is my major hobby.
I like it more and more...
