How the test works

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

Lately I feel very nostalgic, although I'm not too old yet, I would love to turn back time and be reborn to do things in a different way. If I could, I would go back to my childhood and my grandparents' village to be able to spend more time with them, because they died when I was 5 years old. Also, if I were to be a child again, I would play more in the street with my friends and I would spend more time outdoors in nature. Maybe all this is not be very realistic since I would travel to the past with the experience that I have right now, valuing all those things that I let go by. What a nerdy person I am!

Getting that for you now...
