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

Yesterday my mother and I started reading this novel set in Mexico and written in Spanish. It's about Tita's life, her romantic and family relationships. Also the culinary theme is very important and one can learn Mexican recipes. The novel mixes realistic and magical elements, and this means both my mother and I are hooked on the story from the first page. According to the reviews, it is one of the best novels of the 20th century. How will the story finish? Will Tita be happy at the end?

Clever stuff underway!
