It is interesting to see how many of the answers were similar to my own. Regarding the writing of a language, I think it is fine if it is as KC said, and Thinhyandoiel, I think that is beautiful! I think it is fine to have a created language as poetry, or a prologue etc. or anything that is not essential to understand to add to the story, that way, the more committed readers who are really interested will be the ones to try and figure it out. That way it will enhance their enjoyment of the story and make a little fun along the way. As with Lord of the Rings etc. there is a difference between reading the books and reading the books then reading the Unfinished tales and the History of Middle Earth.
Do not tamper with the affairs of wizards, they are not all that subtle - Terry Pratchett

To write is to make dreams, to make dreams is to awaken the fantasy of the mind, to awaken the mind is to be a master.
