Hello everyone!

I have one question which I am all the time thinking about.
When using signwriting, and let's imagine we do have two people, one on left and the other one on right. I am the story teller/ interpreter. :D
When writing, I can use the shoulders turning left to transfer the person on my right's words and vice versa.
As I turn my shoulders, shall I continue writing as if the person was in front of me but the shoulders turned away, or I have to write the shoulders turning away and the whole sign as well???
In my writings, in order not to be confused and not to make the writing more complexed, I write as if the person were before me and I only change the shoulders orientation!

Does any one know how to help please??? 
Thank you all!!!!
