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

- I quit my job yesterday. - Really? What happened? - My boss Raymond was never respectful: he often called me on my days off or after work, he never paid me overtime and he made comments about my clothes. Yesterday, my daughter was sick. I needed to leave an hour early in order to take her to the doctor's, and he refused. That was the last straw!

Clever stuff happening!
