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 I was little, I used to sleep all the time. In the mornings, I struggled to wake up, and my mother had to entice me with a nice hot chocolate. I often took a nap in the afternoon. I could fall asleep anywhere. Once, I fell asleep right in the middle of a family meal! I woke up with my head on my plate, and everyone laughed merrily! Still today, I love sleeping, and napping is my favourite pastime!
