I keep getting the error: "Your code took too long to run."

I don't really understand what I am doing wrong. I wrote out the code, thinking it was right, and kept getting the error listed above. I even copy and pasted the code from the previous video that this challenge is for, and I get the same error.

var count = 0;

const counter = 0;
while ( counter <= 26 ) {
  document.write(count + ' ');
  counter += 1;

Hi Conner,

You are close but you have to execute document.write() 26x you are executing it 27x becuase of wrong while statement. Shoul look like below.

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

And one more thing, you don't need to create second variable, and also no reason to concat empty string after value if you dont concat other string. It is used to make space between strings when you concatin.
