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

I've never had glasses before. One day, I was reading the newspaper and I was squinting, as usual. Then, my wife asked me if I could give her the movie time schedule. I couldn't read the numbers, they were completely blurry! That's when I understood that I needed glasses. Yesterday, I received my new pair of glasses and the difference is really spectacular: everything is sharp again!

Getting that for you now...
