The way of reading and writing is fairly simple, a few basics:
- Direction of reading/writing is, starting from the bottom, counterclockwise
- Every seperate circle represents a word
- Within each circle, different combinations of circles and lines represent letters
- A vowel that directly follows a consonant, is drawn within that consonant

Step 1: Step 1: Preparation
I look for quotes I like, for instance from movies or series I love. Here, I chose for a quote from Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire: "Babbling, bumbling band of baboons"
I take a new piece of paper, and write the quote on it (just for reference). Under it, I draw the amount of circles I need for this quote (third image). The circle for 'of' is intentionally smaller, because it only has two signs in it. Words like 'a', 'the', 'me', etc. are easier to leave small.
Step 2: Step 2: Drawing up the first words
In 'babbling' and 'baboons', double letters can be made by doubling up the lines.
The small lines coming from certain letters (like the 'f') represent the lines that have to be attached to that sign. Later more on this. For now, just clearly mark the amount of lines.
