How the test works

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

- At the time, I was looking for a hobby that would be cheap and easy to carry around. I'd never heard of adult colouring books before seeing them at the local book shop. I bought one to give it a go, and after only a couple of pages, I was hooked! - I don't think there's anything more satisfying than to drink a beer that you've brewed yourself. But don't be mistaken, homebrewing is a time-consuming hobby. It requires creativity, patience and precision, but the result is worth the effort! I wouldn't exchange my hobby for anything in the world!

Getting that for you now...
