Python Django Basics Test Time Test our Writer model

Can't seem to find the error...

We need to test that our Writer model's creation works like we want it to. First, though, we need to import the model from our models.py file. Add that import, please.

from django.test import TestCase

from .models import Writer

class WriterModelTestCase(TestCase):
    '''Tests for the Writer model''
from django.db import models

class Article(models.Model):
    headline = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    publish_date = models.DateTimeField()
    content = models.TextField()
    writer = models.ForeignKey('Writer')

    def __str__(self):
        return self.headline

class Writer(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    email = models.EmailField()
    bio = models.TextField()

    def __str__(self):
        return self.name

    def mailto(self):
        return '{} <{}>'.format(self.name, self.email)

See the comment here:

class WriterModelTestCase(TestCase):
    '''Tests for the Writer model''

You deleted the last ' there. That's causing a syntax error.

I opened a bug for us to look into making a better error message there.
