    Writing or sentence

    I think both words writing and senetnce mean sentences. Would you please teach me the difference and usage?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Writing or sentence

    The phrase my writing refers to what I have written. It could mean my handwriting, or essays, or papers that I've written. It refers to your writing in general, whereas sentences is rather specific.

    Ex: Here are the sentence I wrote.
    Ex: Here is the writing I wrote. <Meaning, sentences>
    Ex: Here is my writing.

    Note, writing doesn't take -s (*writings), and it agrees with a singular verb (My writing is terrible!).

    All the best.
