Message Writing

Message writing
A message is a medium of communication in writing, by speech or signals. To write a message you need to think carefully about the purpose of writing message. You have to select relevant information, which needs to be included. Message should be short and clearly expressed. Messages can be of several different kinds such as invitation, condolence, and telegraphic congratulatory, illness etc. Each kind of message has its own particular form. Messages can be either formal or informal, but the common denominator is that a message should 'be quickly transmitted. It looses its value if it doesn't reach the receiver in time. Therefore, be quick and short while sending a note of message to someone.

  • Formal messages are generally written in Third person whereas informal messages can be a short-note or an ordinary letter.
  • A message is usually addressed to the recipient by name and closing with the sender's name. It is not necessary to formally close the message by writting yours faithfully, affectionately etc.
  • In an informal message, there is no need of the signature, although it is not prohibited. 
  • A message should be short, to the point and clear.
  • Informal messages are usually written in the first person whereas formal messages are written in third person.
  • In a note of message, it is not a rule to put salutation, although there is no strict bar.
  • A message should have relevant information and factual description. It is always useful to put date, time and place in the message, you can also add your fax number, phone number, e-mail. address etc. If the receiver wants to contact you.
  • A Message can be just the words of congratulation. For example you can fax to your colleague: ''Greetings on becoming a mother of a sweet doll. Take care!'' and put your signature below.
Message writing Example:

Write a message on behalf of your mother, who is away to her office and cooked your food and kept it in the refrigerator.
