Is it bad practice to put all variables and strings into one "var sentence =" rather than into multiple "sentence +=" ?

I store the result into "one var sentence= " and only use one "sentence +=" for the purpose of the practise please see my code. https://teamtreehouse.com/workspaces/41290864 Is it bad practice to do it this way?

You can't share a direct URL to your workspace, it's temporary and only exists while you are using it; but you can use the snapshot function in the workspace and provide the link to that.

But it doesn't sound like what you are describing would be significant enough to warrant the term "bad practice". I will say that personally, when a very long string is being constructed, I find it easier to read when broken into individual concatenating assignments that don't exceed the typical line length.
