    Constructing a Complaint letter.

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by MatrixGravity, Feb 26, 2011.

    I REALLY would love if somebody could help me with this. I just really don't know where to start. I'm afraid of writing. I'm afraid of failure. I know that i have the potential to possibly write a good letter but i just can't seem to get myself to do it.. I'm desperate :/


    "Write a letter of complaint. Follow the rules for a business letter, and use the full-block style.
    The complaint may be about anything you wish (such as malfunctioning equipment, poor
    building maintenance, or disruptive noises from a nearby office). You can base your letter
    on a true experience, or you can make up all the details you need"

    This sounds like something I once wrote for a course I took in school, basically what you want is this:

    1st paragraph: State the problem.
    2nd paragraph: State a solution.
    3rd paragraph: Give them a time frame.

    You want to be nice, but firm.

    If this is an assignment for school, you need to do the writing yourself. You can google "letters of complaint" to find examples.

    Have I not just given you a basic outline? I'm not going to write the letter for you, but you have a basic outline, you should be able to construct it from there, pick anything to complain, maybe write a complaint letter about writing a complaint letter, that way you can just let your thoughts spew out.

    I worked in a patient advocacy office in a clinic a couple years ago so I've seen and handled complaint letters. I can help, but I need more -- what are you writing the letter about, what have you got already etc.
