Reply to "Present perfect simple or progressive"

Hi, Egyptian2017,

"have written" indicates that the process of writing has finished. It could be used with another adverbial, for example:

  • have written two letters in three hours. They are ready to be delivered.

"have been writing" indicates that the process is still ongoing.

  • have been writing two letters for three hours. I hope I can finish them soon.
