How the test works

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

It was snowing when my son was born. I was looking at the snow when the midwife came to get me. I entered the room and I saw him for the first time. He was so cute in his blanket with his tiny hands and his little head. When I came up to his cradle, he opened his big blue eyes, and he grabbed my thumb. What a magical moment!

Getting that for you now...
