Hi, I'm Neil.
I started to learn BSL as part of my volunteering as a disabled ski instructor, when one of my skiers lost her hearing.
With Covid etc, I've not really progressed with all our voluntary activities stopped.
To keep my sanity I started writing short stories and I want to enter a summer competition with a romance I have had in mind.
The main character is a deaf lady Isla, who has had an admirer all her life, who has now returned from university and travelling to muster up the courage to actually talk with her.
I have him learning basic BSL. My idea is for him to learn as they chat, through signing and a few adventures.
But I need help with the sentence structure of the signing part. The hope is to have some humour with it as part of the romance and how the hero teaches his family to also sign, so our heroine can be included..
It will only be a short story, so it shouldn't take too much time...
Hopefully if anyone can help with signs that are similar, that during learning and practicing BSL that can inject a little more humour and mishap into the story then all the better.
Stay Safe everyone.
