Writing is an integral part to paperwork and writing books! If you want to write an official department memo, or a good looking book, you’re gonna have to know how to write it.
To properly understand this, you need a basic grasp of BBCode or HTML. This code is based on Bay12 code, so if you know it, it’s going to be easy. But don’t worry, even if you don’t know either, just try copy pasting the examples and replacing the text with your own! Once you’re comfortable with that, try experimenting with what works together and how.
Writing is performed on paper using any standard writing utensil.
