Anyway, I don't think there's any one reason. I wasn't really inspired to begin or anything. Initially I was just bored and when I was writing a story in a fictional place, I thought "Its own language would be fun." So… yeah. That's basically how. But then last year I got better at it because I started studying languages and so I brought what I knew of natlangs into a new conlang which was by far the best yet (now Isyan is). So I have two beginnings ^^ .

Well, except Dialectõ, but I haven't worked on it in forever. Most of my conlangs I start, get a little bit into it, then I discover new cases or other grammatical features that I would like to put in my conlang, and instead of adding them into there, I just create a brand new conlang.

Even though I've only started about 5 conlangs, I've been tempted to create many more...but they would just end up being distractions.
Also, anyone else inspired by Tolkien? Though I discovered Tolkien's conlanging after I initially started creating my first conlang attempts, after reading about him and Quenya and everything, it was a big inspiration.
