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 can't believe Audrey is already one year old! It was only yesterday that her head fit in the palm of my hand, and now look at her waddling all over the place! Although she doesn't know how to speak yet - unlike her ten-month-old cousin who's a real chatterbox - she's become very good at making herself understood. And what she lacks in language skills, is more than made up for by her motor skills. We can't keep our eyes off her for more than a couple of seconds, without her simply disappearing until we find her again playing in the cat's litter box or splashing about in the toilet bowl.

Clever stuff happening!
