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

My girlfriend is always mad at me when I take long naps, since sometimes these last two hours. She says I am lazy and that I spend the afternoon lazing around, but she doesn't understand that I get up very early and that I need to re-energize. Also, taking a nap is a great pleasure, as long as I wake up without a headache. When the nap is not good, I get up in a bad mood and my girlfriend gets even angrier. Maybe I should sleep less but for me naps are necessary, especially when I feel so tired after working so hard.

I'll be right with you...
