Help with sentence? I am confusion

I was chatting in Hellotalk with a native speaker. From what I looked up and understood

It means writing in a clear and concise manner is difficult isn’t it?

分かりやすく簡潔に書くのは難しいですよね

But, I thought connecting i-adjetives was with くて and 書く used the を particle not に

Little help here please. If I were to guess に is because its not describing a person.

わかりやすい and 簡潔 are adjectives, yes, but in this sentence they are acting adverbially.

To make an i-adjective into an adverb, you change the い to く, and to make a na-adjective into an adverb, you change な to に.

わかりやすい - easy to understand
わかりやすく - in an easy to understand way
簡潔な - concise
簡潔に - concisely

There is no direct object of 書く in this sentence, so nothing can be marked with を. It is implied… something like 文章を is understood without being said.
