# Getting error Traceback (most recent call last):

I'm getting this error in the Letter Game.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "letter_game.py", line 58, in <module>
NameError: name 'bad_guess' is not defined

Here is my code:

import random

# make a list of words

words = [ 'apple', 'banana', 'orange', 'rapsberry', 'melon', 'lemon', 'bluebarry', 'strawberry', 'lime', 'pear',

]

while True: start = input("Press enter/return to start, or Q to quit") if start.lower() == 'q': break

```# pick random word
secret_word = random.choice(words)
good_guesses = []

while len(bad_guesses) < 7 and len(good_guesses) != len(list(secret_word)):
# draw spaces
for letter in secret_word:
if letter in good_guesses:
print(letter, end='')
else:
print('_', end='')

print('')
print('')

# take a guess
guess = input("Guess a letter: ").lower()
if len(guess) != 1:
print("You can only guess a single letter!")
continue
elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
print("You have already guess that letter!")
continue
elif not guess.isalpha():
print("You can only guess letters")
continue

if guess in secret_word:
good_guess.append(guess)
if len(good_guess) == len(list(secret_word)):
print("You win! The word was {}".format(secret_word))
break
