The Aturian Writing System

So I created my own writing system for Everwind. It’s been a long time coming, as I’ve attempted this probably 5 or 6 times since I started writing the Everwind series, and a few times even before that, just for fun. I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t inspired by the Elven script

hands clasped over bible. Freedom of religion includes freedom from religion.

It is astounding how many times I hear something like, “It’s freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion!” I can no longer abide this egregious divorce from logic and reasoning.
