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

This year, if I could afford it, I would like to take my Valentine to Paris. We would stroll along the Seine, and we'd go to art galleries together. We could also go for a meal in a good bistrot. And afterwards, I would finally propose to her. I would take her to a charming little park, and I would get down on one knee. She would be so surprised! She'd say yes, of course, then we would take a boat, and we would celebrate our engagement while drinking champagne!

Getting that for you now...
