write (part of speech: verb)

- It would have been easy for him to rewrite these pages in other terms, but they appeared to him to be so well suited to the character of Napoleon that he has preferred to preserve them." - "The Project Gutenberg Memoirs of Napoleon Bonaparte", Bourrienne, Constant, and Stewarton.
- I simply write and rewrite until the perfected manuscript lies before me. - "Dramatic Technique", George Pierce Baker.
