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

I can't wait to celebrate Thanksgiving with my friends! Yes, this year, we can't go home to our respective families, so we decided to cook the traditional feast ourselves. Judith will be in charge of the pumpkin pie which she has already made several times before, and Matt and Tom will bring the drinks. Peter will prepare the classic sides: cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, corn and green beans. As for the highlight of the show, Ava and I will take care of it. We will go and buy the turkey and stuffing, as well as some seitan which we'll roast to have a vegetarian option. I really hope that it won't be a disaster! And if worst comes to worst, we'll always be able to order pizzas.

Getting that for you now...
