YES! Exactly. It makes a HUGE difference. Transcribing a foreign  
signed language from video, writing exactly what you see without  
judging the language...that is what Stefan is referring to...

...but writing what you know from inside of you, in your native  
language, are two very different experiences...

And generally that is the difference between Movement Writing which  
is more neutral, and SignWriting, that is more specific...

I am happy both of you are writing - please continue!

Val ;-)
