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

If I had to talk about a far from conventional person, that would be my grandmother Carmen without a doubt. The reason for this is that she has been voted the best rock star in her village. The fact that she sings and dances rock 'n' roll leaves no one indifferent and it's the reason she received this award. The aforementioned prize was awarded by the mayor, who has been following her musical career over the years. My grandmother has started recording songs with a record producer and she must be fairly good because she is starting to sell many CDs and she plans to do a tour around the country. But I am sure that travelling for so long will end up making her tired.

Clever stuff happening!
