Python

Something is seriously wrong with my code and I don't know what it is.

import random

import random

make a list of words

words = [ 'caleb', 'Console', 'apples', 'chrisbrown', 'breezy', 'blueberries', 'head phones'
] while True: start = input("To start game type enter or /return, type Q when you want to quit") if start.lower() == 'q': break #pick a random word random_word = random.choice(words) bad_guesses = [] good_guesses = []

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

    print('')
    print('Strikes {}/7'.format(len(bad_guesses)))
    print('')

#take guesses
guess = input("Guess a letter!: ").lower()

if len(guess) != 1:
    print("That is not one letter, try again")
    continue
elif guess in bad_guesses or guess in good_guesses:
    print("You have already guessed that letter.")
    continue
elif not guess.isalpha():
    print("You can only guess letters!")
    continue
#print out win/lose
if guess in random_word:
    good_guesses.append(guess)
    if len(good_guesses) == len(list(random_word)):
        print("You win!, the word was {}".format(random_word))
        break
    else:
        bad_guesses.append(guess)

while len(bad_guesses) < 7 and len(good_guesses) != len(list(random_word)):
    #draw spaces
    #draw a guessed letters, spaces, and strikes
    for letter in random_word:
