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

I wonder what I'm going to get her for our wedding anniversary! I've been thinking about it for weeks. It has to be memorable I want her to feel like a princess! If I could afford it, I would buy us a superb cruise to the Caribbean. We would sunbathe on the deck while drinking cocktails out of coconuts. But still, it's our 40th wedding anniversary, our emerald anniversary! I have to mark the occasion! Wait, what if I got her a beautiful emerald? Maybe I could ask the children to help me pick it out. Yes, I would have it mounted on a pendant, with our two names engraved on the other side. Who says that I'm not romantic!

Getting that for you now...
