ICSE Class 9 Comprehension and Composition Revision Notes for Message Writing
What is a Message?
A message is a short record of information noted for conveying it to the person whom it is for and who is not present at the moment to receive it. The aim of a message is to convey information to its owner as soon as he or she is back. Therefore, it is usually written on a small slip of paper and left at a place easily visible to him or her.

Tips for Writing a Message
A message should be written in less than fifty words. So, keep it brief and to the point.
Practise writing messages focusing on conveying more information with few words.
While cutting down words, important information such as date and time when the message is noted should not be missed.
Ensure easy understanding of the message by avoiding grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.
Use simple or compound sentences instead of complex ones where possible.
