    Re: resume writing or writing resume

    As it is right now, only the one extracted from the book sounds natural.

    To switch the word order, you'd need to say 'writing resumes' or 'writing a resume'.

    Re: resume writing or writing resume

    We usually say "on the right track".

    Re: resume writing or writing resume

    I checked my grammar book but found nothing revelant about the structure extracted from the book. In a simple sentence, we usually write a resume rather than resume write. For instance," What are you doing? I am writing a resume."
    Is it correct to say: I spent most of my spare time in football playing. Could you please explain more to clear me up?
    To be safe, is it properly and natural using my way to write if I correct the mistakes pointed out by Toy.
    Thanks a lot.
