How the test works

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

If I didn't have to work so much, I would spend more time helping others. For example, I would go to retirement homes and I would keep the residents company, especially those who don't get many visits. I would also volunteer in a homeless shelter where I would serve meals or I would help make the beds. But enough excuses! There is already so much that I could do in my spare time. Tomorrow, I'll call the closest shelter!

Clever stuff happening!
