While I'm writing, I'm far away; 
and when I come back, I've gone.

Affect and effect can have various effects on your writing. In order to use affect and effect correctly, remember: affect which begins with an “a” means to act, which also begins with an “a”; and effect, which starts with an “e”, means the end or the result. For example: The storm affected many people, but it had no effect on me.
