Write and writing are clearly the most common terms for what we all do as writers. But they are not the only words to describe the practice of writing. Author is another writing-related word everyone is familiar with. Well known but less commonly used synonyms include craft, draft, scribe, compose and transcribe. Pen and pencil are considered synonyms. Modern terms like email could even be considered a synonym as in "I will email you later" instead of "I will write you later."
