    כתב - Write
    רשם - Write down

    obvious overlap aside, the distinction is:
    כתב - "Writing process", has more to do with creative work, authorship, communication, documentation, etc.
    רשם - "Put it into paper", has a more physical sense. making lists, taking notes, sometimes sketching.
