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

My grandmother is a cat lover: her house is filled with cats of all ages! Over the years, she has looked after dozens of stray cats and she's adopted many of them. That would be absolutely wonderful if I wasn't allergic to cats! We discovered my allergy when I was four years old, thanks to our visits to my grandmother's house. Every time I would come into her house, I would start sneezing violently and I was itchy all over. Since my diagnosis, it's my grandmother who visits us!
