I get an 'EOFError: EOF when reading a line' any suggestions?

def suggest(product_idea):
    return product_idea + "inator"

product_idea = input("What is your idea?   ")
if len (product_idea) < 3:
    raise ValueError("must be more than 3 characters long!")

You're working to hard! For this challenge:

  • all the work will be done inside the function
  • you won't need to "input" anything

In general, for best results from the challenges, always do only what the instructions ask for and nothing extra.
