I cannot figure out this challenge

When I enter this code I get an error message telling me 'Bummer! Your code took to long to run' What should I do?

Thanks, Ben

script.js
var count = 0;
while ( count < 26 ) {
  document.write(count);
}

You need a way to make the loop stop.

Right now, it runs forever. You probably intended to change the count to keep track of how many times the loop has run. To do that, you could add something like this in the loop:

  count += 1;
