RAFT writing is a fun way to improve your writing skills and take your creative juices out. It enhances your thinking power by visualizing the situation you are in, i.e the role you are playing!
RAFT- The wrong house
Role of the writer – Library
Audience- Owner( Mr. Samuel W Rogers)
Format – Complain letter
Topic+strong verb – You left me behind!
It’s been a week since you left the house with your family. You had promised me, you would take at least one of my books but you were so busy in packing that you didn’t realize when you left your beloved library behind, amidst dust and cobwebs. You have been careless. You covered the furniture with sheets, rolled the rugs and kept them aside, closed the windows, locked the doors but did you remember me? What about my books? They have been covered with layers of dust. I am not being cleaned and nor is anyone taking books from me and sitting on the armchair by the fireplace reading them. I am very angry and your punishment is that I have hidden some of your favourite books in my racks. As for me, I cant wait for you to return. I have written a poem for you all this pass time. Here it goes-
It was a Sunday morning,
When you got up to pack,
I was crying for you,
But it is good hearing you lack.
You would have taken me with you,
Had you kept it in mind,
But you were too busy with others
And you left me behind!
