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

My cousin Lyse plays the accordion. I know that it's a surprising choice but she has always liked this instrument. She was six when she started playing, and the accordion used to touch her chin! For our grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary, she learned their favourite waltz, and it was very moving! This year, she took an exam at the conservatory. She had to work hard, but she passed it!

I'll be right with you...
