This will hopefully help you to make your own written code, which only you will be able to read, or someone else, should you share the Alphabet.

Supplies:

Step 1: Find Your Style

You have a few questions to ask yourself,

Should my script write left to right? Or top to bottom?

Will I have the same amount of symbols as the number of letters in your Alphabet, for example English has 26 letters, same number of symbols? Or a couple of symbols that stand for the same letter? P.S, doing that really screws people who try to break the code.

Are your symbols going to be broken, or all one continuous line (like mine).

Are you going to use a symbol for spaces between words (which works best for systems that are all on one line, again you'll see what I mean when you look at those pictures.)

Are you also going to to make a number system (P.S its pretty hard.)

Step 2: Make the Characters!

My personal character system was inspired by the fact that I like tribal, and I love writing styles that are all one line, so I set out to make one.

Tips to keep in mind, keep all your symbols distinct, and try not to let them blend together. One a single line system I leave a segment of straight line to help break the different symbols apart. As you can see by this photo, it takes quite a bit of brain storming, to get everything just right.

I decided on long flowing characters, that look confusing but are really quite organized. Also I made characters for spaces between words, apostrophe, and periods.

(P.S. I had to remove some part of the picture as they were the Alphabet and no one must know my secrets, BUWAWHAHWHAWHA!!!! Cough... cough... hack...)

Try an older language or make something new, because as it is it won't work.

have you tryed a layered code? like, taking a message, coding it one way where certain letters represent others, and then translating THAT into your alphabet? so, once they cracked your alphabet, theyd need to know a key word to know the message.

it wouldn't work, they would just skip knowing the real alphabet and learn the coded one. What you would have to do if you wanted to code it again is have multiple letters mean one letter so that they couldn't skip stages.

If you were sharing notes with a friend you could--- wait this was five years ago. Uhm... You were talking about how easy it was to crack something like a Caesarean cipher, and I was thinking if you were sharing notes with a friend you could devise a way to communicate what the new key word was in the message.

or make it depend on math equations to form numbers which equal letters i have a different layer in my code that depends on the date it was sent
