How the test works

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

When my daughter Leila was born, I didn't know how to change a diaper, and I was pretty nervous. I had to learn everything. I didn't choose to breastfeed, so Karim and I learned how to prepare a bottle, with hilarious mishaps! Luckily, Leila was an easygoing baby and we improved quickly. Now, we can change a diaper and give Leila the bottle with our eyes closed!

Clever stuff happening!
