Thank you, Bill, for this nice comment.
Certainly there are a lot of planes! ;-)
And you are right. The hardest job is to make all this easy for the writer...
That is why I cut the general Movement Writing system into sections,
such as SignWriting and DanceWriting. That way, we could focus just
on signers' or dancers' specific needs, without forcing everyone to
write all details...
Slowly we have to make decisions as to what details to write, and
what details to ignore...
But that will most likely come with experience over time -
Thanks once again for your input -
