A few hints:

  • you'll want your loop to occur before the "Welcome" message.
  • you'll want to include the prompt inside the loop to keep asking until you get the right input
  • you need to test if the input was "sesame" instead of an empty string
  • you probably don't want to write the input back out
  • don't try to increment a string
  • the challenge did not ask for a count anyway
  • "write", not "wrtie"
