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 always get anxious when I have to fly, so this year, I've decided to take control of the situation in order to avoid having a bad flight. First, I booked a massage. I'll go the morning before my flight, which will relax me. Then, I'll make sure to arrive early at the airport. I will have my lunch in a good restaurant there, and I'll even drink a small whisky! By then, I should be ready to take a long nap! As a result, I'll be relaxed, full and drowsy when I get on the plane. If with all that, I don't have a peaceful flight, I truly am a hopeless case!

Clever stuff happening!
