I think you're assuming that I haven't already tried.

(In addition to the cursive, there is actually an offshoot shorthand
variant, though it doesn't strike me as anything near optimal with regard
to motor functions. And "shorthand" here, too, means the ad-hoc omission of
signs; it's not merely a cursive that retains full information by mirroring
the printed form. Btw, the cursive looks somewhat standardized, not sure
about the shorthand as far as the latest version of SignWriting is
