[Haskell-cafe] How to put a string into Data.Binary.Put

I was trying to put a String in a ByteString
import qualified Data.ByteString.Lazy as BS
message :: BS.ByteString
message = runPut $ do
let string="SOME STRING"
string -- this ofcourse generates [Put]
How can I convert the list of Put's such that it could be used in the Put monad?
For now I used the workaround of first converting the string to
ByteString like this -
stringToByteString :: String -> BS.ByteString
stringToByteString str = BS.pack (map (fromIntegral.ord) str)
and then using putLazyByteString inside the Put monad.
