Writing based in nature

The scripts of Roshar are completely unintelligible to me. They look like pictures of seismograph readings.  But is that a coincidence,  considering the dawncities may have been made with vibration? Or that Lightweaving deals with all waveform? So much of Rosharan culture ties back to the Radiants and the Heralds in some ways that I can't help but think that they are related.

Maybe it came from recording the Rhythms...

I think the nature of the Women's Script accentuates Vorin sensibilities: they value elegance above most else, and their alphabet is no exception. It has a flow to it, and if you learn how to read it (which I highly recommend, because Navani's notebooks has some really interesting information on fabrials, even if her handwriting does leave a little to be desired), you'll notice that certain lettering groups are connected, which to me makes perfect sense when you pay attention to the little verbal linguistic details that Brandon leaves scattered throughout his writing.
