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

I'm ready to go to the Kings Parade, it is going to be incredibly exciting since it is a charity parade so that orphan children receive toys. I'm thinking of taking an umbrella in case it rains later. I don't know why exactly but the parade of the [Three] Wise Men fills me with emotion because I must see them on their floats. Every year I get a little nervous although I hope to enjoy tonight. I want to see my boyfriend's face of satisfaction tomorrow morning! (He) is not really the type to receive gifts but I know that he will be very excited (about the fact) that the [Three] Wise Men brought him a new watch.

Clever stuff happening!
