|The Defenition Of Writing|
Furthermore, Churchill and friends (2010:1) say the defenitions of writing as follows: a) The act of forming letters and characters on paper, wood, stone, or other material, for the purpose of recording the ideas which characters and words express, or communicating them by visible signs; b) Anything written or printed; c) Anything expresson in characters or letters; any legal instrument, as a deed, a receipt, a bond, an agreement, or the like; d) Any written composition.
Writing is the graphic counterpart of speech, the fixing of spoken language in a permanent form (Gerrit, 1970:17). It means that writing is aspoken language which is conveyed through written language or symbols. Writing is a thinking process (white,1970:1).
From the all defenitions of writing above, we can conclude that writing is an act of personal or group which is used to express ideas, thoughts, feeling, message, and information through written language symbols. On the other word, it can be defined that writing is a discovery process ; it involves, ideas discovering how to organize them and discovering what you want to put on your reader.
