Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

The rain caught me on my way home and I arrived soaked to the skin. It would be good if I changed my clothes immediately and prepared a nice hot dish so I don't catch a cold. I'm going to search the internet and look for a new recipe that sounds good and is also healthy. Look! This tuna stew looks very good. It is a hot tuna stew with potatoes, onion, pepper and tomato, which was originally made by Cantabrian Sea fishermen. It is an extremely complete dish nutritionally speaking, and it is preferable to serve it in a clay pot. The truth is that, when I decide to cook, I can do it very well.
