Use lots of rebus writing, to the point where there may be as many phonetic signs as logographic signs. Don't merge multiple signs into single compound characters like Chinese does; leave them independent and string them together.

It's not really a guide, but I have made a language with a sort of Egyptian-style conscript, if you want to look at that at all.

I do think the board would very much benefit from a Hausa guide though.

I've actually started learning Hausa, so when I'm somewhat proficient, I could do an AMA

Anybody got anything on how to create a hieroglyphic script à la Egyptian?
The Index Diachronica PDF link in your sig is broken.

I think he's not taking care of it anymore, particularly since some people grabbed it and made some things with it for some reason. There was some guy who made a (paid) application that generates conlangs that uses it as a component. You can get the Index Diachronica (and also search it) on this website made by someone else (not Linguifex / Pogostick Man).

Thanks for letting me know about the link.

chri d. d. has been gracious enough to make a working searchable version, so I'd have to send him any further drafts before I do anything else.

It isn't that I don't want to take care of it anymore, it's more that real life—particularly work and health issues—have gotten in the way. I've been meaning to add to it for quite some time but just haven't had the time or energy.

I'll have to fix the link soon. I think Slorany on reddit has the PDF hosted somewhere, I might just use that link.

Hausa is too weird to wrap my head around (I get the theory, but as a spoken language..... [O.O] ), but I'm now trying to learn Amharic, so I might be able to do an AMA about the language, especially comparing it to other Semitic languages, like Hebrew and Arabic

Would anyone be interested in an eventual AMA of Spoken Tibetan? Or Mongolian?

I'd prefer Spoken Tibetan. There seems to be less easily accessible materials on that, as opposed to Classical/Written Tibetan.
