Hello,
Are the sentences below both correct?
" I'm writing regarding your purchase. Or
I'm writing with regard to your purchase. "


Thank you

    I don't think the first sentence is wrong, but I'd say the second is a lot more common and sounds a lot better.

    I think it's the two consecutive '---ing' words that make it sound awkward and inelegant.

    If you don't want two successive words ending in -ing, you can say I'm writing you/to you regarding ... [writing you is AE.]

    (With regard to is the same as In regard to.)
