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

I've always loved going to museums, but what I like the most in those places, (they) are the souvenir shops that accompany them. I look at their colourful shelves, full of interesting books, (of) reproductions of famous paintings and (of) unique objects. Each treasure allows me to prolong the experience beyond the doors of the museum or (of) the exhibition. When I buy a book about an artist that I didn't know before, the beautiful framed reproduction of a masterpiece or even a little keyring in the shape of a famous sculpture, it is as if I was bringing a bit of that universe home. To me, these shops are a true source of inspiration.

Getting that for you now...
