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

MARIE: When I was little, I used to devour the adventures of Fantômette. How many times I dreamt of being her! I'd have fought crime thanks to my intelligence, my mastery of foreign languages and my thirst for reading. I'd also have been careful to protect my secret identity, which even my best friends Ficelle and Boulotte wouldn't have suspected. Only the journalist Œil-de-Lynx (Eagle Eye) would have known that Françoise Dupont and Fantômette were one and the same. I'd have loved to wear the famous poofball hat, the black cape with red lining and of course, the black eye mask to hide who I am. I'd have lived such extraordinary adventures!

I'll be right with you...
