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

This year, we will celebrate New Year's Eve at home. For the occasion, I will prepare a festive meal which we'll share with our guests. We won't be too many, only a few close friends, my brother and my sister-in-law. The evening must go well because it is the first time (that) I'm hosting them. To start with, I will serve glasses of champagne and Victor will offer some appetisers. We also ordered a magnificent seafood platter which I'll go and collect two hours before the meal. I can't wait for the 31st !

I'll be right with you...
