That's a complicated and often tedious process.
First you need to familiarize yourself with vector graphics, you can use [url)https://inkscape.org/en/
]inkscape[/url] which is free, or if you have access to it, you can use Adobe Illustrator or Corel DRAW. (A very good tip for vectors is try to have your handles at either a horizontal or vertical angle, this makes handling curves much easier and optimizes your designs a lot)
Once you are familiar with these you need to get a font making software, free ones include Font Forge
and Type Light
, don't bother getting paid ones, the advantages are minimal, they are quite expensive and chances are you'll never use them for professional type making, which is their intended use.
As for how to specifically use these softwares, I suggest you take a look at youtube tutorials, each software is different and describing their use would be a titanic task in a written format.
EDIT: One thing I forgot, if your script is not an alphabet, but a syllabary, abjad, abugida or logographic system, don't even bother, the skills needed to pull it off are worthy of a masters degree.
