Is there any way to assign a word to be a variable and if so, how would I write it so something like 'write' appears as one variable and not 5?

Say if I would write out an equation such as '10 + WRITE = 0, find WRITE' is it possible to use a word as a variable instead of a letter?  So WRITE is not broken down into 5 separate variables?
