How the test works

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

When my daughter was little, we used to have a little ritual. Every night, she would put her pyjamas on and we would sit together on her bed. Then, she would pick a main character - it was often her! - a location and a magical object, and I would make up a new story. Those are my favourite memories! Today, my daughter is a beautiful mum [US:mom] and every night, she sits with her son and creates a new world for him!
