How the test works

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

Tonight there will be an equinox, which means that we will enter a new season, the autumn [US: fall] season in the northern hemisphere, which will last until December 21. Although many people feel melancholy because of the fall of the leaves and the arrival of the cold, to others it seems that autumn [US: fall] is the season of prosperity, since it is the time of the harvest of several foodstuffs. Also, because when the autumnal equinox arrives, day and night have the same duration, they say that since ancient times this season has been considered as a time of equilibrium in the world, thanks to which we can achieve peace in our lives and fix all those pending issues that we have. I wish you a very happy autumn [US: fall]!

I'll be right with you...
