    Post Right Writing Vs. Writing Right

    Right Writing Vs. Writing Right

    Is there any difference in meaning?
    Someone challenged me that there is a difference.

    Re: Right Writing Vs. Writing Right

    Right can be an adjective or an adverb. As an adjective it modifies nominals and as an adverb it modifies verbals. Gerunds are privy to both nominal and verbal classes, which is why writing can be modified in both ways:

    Adjective + Gerund
    right writing (a correct piece of writing)

    Gerund + adverb
    writing right (writing correctly)

    All the best.
