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

My son Carlos was very stressed and I suggested to him that he spend a whole weekend disconnected from technological devices. He booked a weekend in a cottage and he took only one book to read. There was neither wifi, nor television, nor modern technology in that place. He spent two days immersed in the heart of nature without anyone bothering him sending him messages or calling him. When he returned to the city, his coworkers told him that he looked like a different person and that he should repeat the experience as soon as possible.

Clever stuff happening!
