There is currently no safe way to write to NTFS in Linux.

you can try captive.
it offers full read/write support for all ntfs versions.
it uses ntfs.sys and emulates the calls (like wine does)

it is experimental but it is used by many people for some time now and it works ok.

I told you in a few words what it is.
It is a program/framework that allows read/write operations on ntfs filesystems using emulation with windows .dll libraries.

There are other alternatives (e.g paragon ntfs but it is not free) but captive is free and works very good.
