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

Yesterday my boyfriend gave me two lovely orchids [as a present]. since it was my birthday and he knows that I love these flowers. When I received them, I put them in water but my friends told me that I do not have to water them often, only once a week given that if I water them more, they are going to drown in a few days. I think they are very beautiful flowers but difficult to care for.

Clever stuff happening!
