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

Have you ever played paper fortune teller? When I was a child, I really liked this game. It was quite simple but very entertaining. My friend and I drew animals on some pieces of paper and we wrote the numbers from 1 to 10. Then, under each number there were some questions to answer. We spent some very entertaining evenings and we didn't have a mobile phone!

Getting that for you now...
