I know that verfassen means to write or to compose:

Alle Bücher sind in deutscher Sprache verfasst.

Can I say "Ich verfasse einen Brief"? Or is the word used for lengthier works such as books?

Ich verfasse die Sperrung gewieser Frage, weil die Antwort hier ganz einfach zu finden ist. Da kommt genau dein Beispiel. –  c.p. Dec 28 '13 at 8:48
@c.p., nice, but wrong German, since a Sperrung is not a document. –  Carsten S Dec 28 '13 at 12:07
@CarstenSchultz alles klar, danke. Ursprünglich hatte ich den Sperrungsbeitrag geschrieben, dann klang der Satz mir irgenwie falsch, und ... blieb es sowieso falsch. –  c.p. Dec 28 '13 at 12:14
