Hello Jonathan and everyone -
I think you are correct that your writing of the sign for YESTERDAY is more accurate and a good way to write it, Jonathan. Attached is one other solution that I have seen before, and I also like this…it too is more abstract in some ways, but it can be read… Thank you for this interesting discussion ….
We re-wrote yesterday this way. What do you think? It's a more
specialized movement symbol but at least readers with ask about and
know more of the SignWriting symbols and I think it is a bit more

This is probably how I would write them. I can't say I am entirely
happy with my own writing, but it seems that it is readable. I use
the diagonal up arrow because it seems to work better in reading
the sign, and the direction of the movement is in between an
upward movement and a backward movement.

Yesterday and Day before yesterday signs we found
difficult to write. In Spanish "anteayer" and "ayer". Both are the same
movement and the same as movement as the ASL sign "Yesterday".
These are two different writing
we are trying but we aren't really happy
I suggested to my Deaf friend Jorge the side view with
the nose showing but he didn't like it very much, he
prefers the expressive view.
Any way to write it so that it is easily read in the
