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

If you'd told me last December what this year had in store for me, I wouldn't have believed you! It started with the biggest heartache of my life, from which I thought I wouldn't recover. I felt like my world had fallen apart, yes, but I also felt a huge relief which I didn't expect. Since then, I've spent a lot of time reconnecting with myself and I haven't been this happy for years! In hindsight, I wouldn't change a thing. And now, I'm looking forward to the new year which promises to be even more fulfilling than the previous one.

Getting that for you now...
