It was the final challenge of the competition. The winner would take home the grand prize of $1 million. The challenge was simple: write a story in one hour using only the words from a given list. But the list was incredibly long, and many of the words were difficult to pronounce.
The contestants all looked at each other, unsure of what to do. It was clear that this was going to be no easy task.
One contestant, a young woman, decided to take a risk. She began writing feverishly, trying to get as many words down as possible. She was determined to win.
As the time ticked by, the other contestants began to drop out, one by one. They just couldn’t keep up with the pace.
But the young woman kept going. Her story was starting to take shape, and she could see the finish line in sight.
With seconds to spare, she finished her story and submitted it.
And she won.
