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 you could be the heroine from a famous novel, who would you be? - Without hesitation, I'd be Cosette, the little girl from "Les Misérables" by Victor Hugo. - The one who is mistreated by the Thénardiers? Really? - It's true that I wouldn't have a very happy childhood, until the day when Jean Valjean would run away with me. But afterwards he'd take care of me and protect me. And then, later on, I'd meet the handsome Marius... And you, who would you pick? - I'd choose d'Artagnan, the fourth Musketeer! I'd fight the Machiavellian Cardinal Richelieu alongside my faithful companions. "One for all, and all for one!"

Let me take a look at that...
