How the test works

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

You know how much I wanted to share that moment with you, but unfortunately, something came up at the office, and I'm going to have to spend most of my weekend there, which frustrates me as much as you, trust me! I was supposed to drive up with your cousin Katia, and I had even made a playlist especially for the trip. Even if I would have loved to embarrass you in public, and I'll regret not being there to ruin all the pictures, I know you'll be in good hands with the rest of the group, and I can't wait for you to tell me all about it. I hope you have the Hen [US: Bachelorette] Party you've always dreamed of, and I promise I'll make it up to you later - maybe by starting with quitting this lousy job!

Clever stuff happening!
