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

After having had covid-19 a couple of months ago, I have some after-effects, among them, the loss of taste and smell. What a big hassle! But not all is lost, since they recommended going to the ear, nose and throat doctor or the ENT, as he is known colloquially. I went to the appointment the other day and after examining me, he told me it was only be a matter of time before I would recover these senses. For the recovery to be faster, he prescribed some essential oils with which I have to train my sense of smell every day. These oils smell of lemon, geranium, eucalyptus and clove. I hope this treatment works!

Clever stuff happening!
