the work of a writer; anything expressed in letters of the alphabet (especially when considered from the point of view of style and effect); "the writing in her novels is excellent"; "that editorial was a fine piece of writing"
letters or symbols written or imprinted on a surface to represent the sounds or words of a language; "he turned the paper over so the writing wouldn't show"; "the doctor's writing was illegible"
Any written composition; a pamphlet; a work; a literary production; a book; as, the writings of Addison.

Selling options. For every option someone buys, there has to be someone who sells an option. The seller is called the “writer” of the option. The seller is “short” the option because s/he's sold it & doesn't have it. Same principle as short-selling a stock or futures contract that you don't presently own.
an optional course in the academic (college preparatory) program

a means of proof whatever the medium, unless the use of a specific medium or technology is required by law
The action of making a recording of data on an external storage device or other data medium.
May refer to two activities: the inscribing of characters on a medium, with the intention of forming words and other constructs that represent language or record information, and the creation of material to be conveyed through written language. (There are some exceptions; for example, the use of a typewriter to record language is generally called typing, rather than writing.) Writing refers to both activities equally, and both activities may often occur simultaneously.
