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 had known where I would take Sophie for our honeymoon since the very day we met. On our first date, she had told me of her passion for Martinique, and that she dreamed of going deep-sea diving there. After doing my research, I had settled on two iconic spots on the Caribbean coast whose beautiful reefs overflow with exotic flora and fauna. I would have preferred for it to be a complete surprise but I wanted her to be able to pick the location herself given that it was her dream to start with! In the end, we explored Diamond Rock's spot where we swam through an actual cave which pierces all the way through the emblematic rock.

Clever stuff happening!
