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

When I was little, I really liked painting. One day my parents bought me a white board to colour in. That's when I realized that I wanted to be a painter when I grew up. I loved mixing the colours and using techniques such as watercolour. I used to paint extremely green landscapes and (I) also used to colour very beautiful sunsets. Now I have become a very famous painter and my collection of paintings is exhibited in the best galleries in the world.

Getting that for you now...
