Incorrect spelling, explanation: spelling
writting with double t is wrong, because the last consonant in a verb is doubled when a word ends with consonant-vowel-consonant combination. Write ends with a vowel so we don’t double the consonant.
Correct spelling, explanation: writing is the correct spelling, because it comes from base form write. When we add -ing to a word ending with vowel e, this vowel is omitted in final form. Therefore write + ing = writing. There is no need to double the consonant t, so
writting is incorrect.
