    Writing With Runes - Forming Sentences/Paragraphs

    I seldom see much on actual rune writing, mainly on the runes individually. I think this is probably due to the simplistic style of writing used. There are runes, and nothing else, except ":". This leads me to this...

    How do you form paragraphs in runes? When I see statements in runes they sometimes start/end with ":". Would you use this as a period in a paragraph, for example:

    : Sentence 1 : Sentence 2 : Sentence 3 : Sentence 4 :

    Should a colon connect with a sentence or word or have a space, for example:

    : Sentence 1 : or :Sentence 1:

    Even though the topic about the direction of writing has already been discussed, but an example would be for "continuous stave" writing (as said here) would be:

    : Sentence 1 : Sentence 2 : Sentence 3 : Sentence 4 :
    : Sentence 8 : Sentence 7 : Sentence 6 : Sentence 5 :

    The next line would start with : Sentence 9 : and you would continue the pattern.

    When forming words, there is plenty of information on how to "translate" modern words in runes, such as not using consecutive runes, and removing silent letters. Also, there seems not to be any punctuation except a colon. Are there any other variations done to runes in writing? I've seen graphics for names with accent signs or umlauts put over runes, but it seems it's only for show.

    Does anyone have any information on this subject?
    "If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?" - Frédéric Bastiat, The Law

    I don't know, man, it's hard to find anything definitive (or I'm not looking in the right places)

    When I write, I put a dot between words and a colon between sentences.

    :WORD*WORD*WORD*WORD*WORD*WORD:WORD*WORD *WORD*WORD*WORD*WORD:

    To separate paragraphs, I just leave a horizontal space.

    Sentence:Sentence:Sentence:Sentence
    Sentence:Sentence:Sentence:Sentence

    Sentence:Sentence:Sentence:Sentence
    Sentence:Sentence:Sentence:Sentence


    I don't know if that's strictly right, but my rune writing is for me, and I understand what I mean.

    When me and my family write in runes, we leave no spaces between words, or sentences for that matter. we just write in a non stopping line until the message is done. I have seen rune rocks done in this way, as well as many others.

    I try to keep it simple. A space between words and a period at the end of sentences.
