How the test works

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

- What are your (good) resolutions this year? - This year, I want to focus on my wellbeing, so I will take more time for myself. I will read more books, I will take baths more often and I will start a new hobby. I've always wanted to learn how to draw so I'll look for classes in January! - What an excellent idea! I want to pay more attention to my family, so I will call them more often and I will visit them whenever I'm free!

I'll be right with you...
