How the test works

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

You are not going to believe me, but something strange is happening in my house since a few days ago. The lights go on and off by themselves, windows suddenly open and close, and sometimes you hear screams in the basement. I'm terrified! Could there be ghosts in my house? I cannot sleep at night since I am very nervous and alert. I have told my parents about this but they say it's my imagination. I will invite them to spend the weekend with me, and so I will see if these paranormal events are repeated. If something strange happens again, I'm sure they'll be off like a shot!
