How the test works

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

Usually, a few weeks before Christmas, I go window shopping for hours in order to find the perfect gift for everyone. But this year will be a bit different, as I won't be able to go to the shops in person. I've already spent several hours browsing the web but it just doesn't feel the same. I'm really trying to support local businesses, so I'm looking at their websites as a priority. Some of them deliver to your door and others offer the option to pick up in store, which should be doable if I go early in the morning. What a strange year!

I'll be right with you...
