No it won't, it's the same as writing about Worshiping statues, Adultery, ... writing about what you don't believe in doesn't make you kafir.

What makes you a Kafir however is breaking the first of the 5 principles Islam is built on (breaking the other 4 makes you a faasiq), here they are:

  1. Admitting that Allah is the only God and Mohammad is his last messenger.
  2. Praying.
  3. Giving charity to the poor.
  4. Fasting Ramadan.
  5. Visiting Mecca and doing Hajj (optional; only if you have enough money and time)

(As said by the Prophet peace be upon him in Hadith 3 - Al bukhary)

    Salam breaking other than the point no 1 would not make you kafir instead Faasiq.
