A goal to work towards in 2021

I’ve gotten back into conlanging recently after being rather unmotivated for the past couple of years. I don’t know why it is that I’m suddenly interested in working on my conlangs all of a sudden, but I am excited to get back into this hobby again.

The documentation I created for most of my conlangs is not the best. Everything is spread out over multiple spreadsheets and word documents – sometimes even different folders! Things are not where I expect them to be, half-finished dictionaries are everywhere, and different versions of the same conlang exist in the same folder…without revision numbers.

And thus a new goal was born: clean up each conlang. After a bit of planning & deliberating, I decided that for each conlang, I’d do each of these things:

  1. Write a description/overview/summary
  2. Create a complete phonology, including allophony, assimilation, stress, etc.
  3. Finalize the orthography
  4. Work out the entire grammar – nouns, verbs, adjectives, sentence structure, etc. with tons of examples
  5. Create a dictionary with all necessary words
  6. Write a description of the conlang on the Conlangs page of this website
  7. Put the conlang on Conworkshop

Yep, I plan on creating a Conlangs page on this website! I had one a long time ago, then deleted it when I wanted to focus this website more on writing. I also plan on making posts about my conlanging process & history, and individual conlangs themselves.

I hope the rest of you are as excited about this as I am!
