How the test works

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

Next month, I'll have a hashtag symbol tattooed on my wrist. But why would you do that, you'll say? Because I wouldn't be anything without hashtags. In my job as an Instagram influencer, hashtags are the main tools that I use to create buzz. Thanks to the substantial income that my brand has generated these last years, I'll soon be able to buy my dream house. And when I wanted to propose to my girlfriend - whom I met through my Instagram - I used hashtags as hints in a treasure hunt which led her to me, on one knee. She said yes, and we'll get married next summer. Now you understand why I'd like that tattoo!

Clever stuff happening!
