How the test works

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

I've always loved sending letters. When I was still too young to write, I would draw pretty pictures that my mother would send to family members. She would always let me lick the stamp! Over the years, I made many pen pals and I still take as much pleasure in writing to them. I even make my own wax seals! After all, if I've learned one thing, it's this: there's nothing better than opening one's letterbox to discover (there) a handwritten letter from someone you love.

Getting that for you now...
