Trouble with JS Strings

I am trying to find out what is wrong with this string that features escape characters. It keeps prompting me to put an n after the backslash but I have already done that. Can anyone help please?

Here is the js:

```var escapedNewLine = "escaped\nNew\nLine";

Hi Jason,

I didn't hunt down the challenge but I believe all that should be in the string is the new line character. Nothing else.

var escapedNewLine = "\n";

Try that.

^ Jason is correct. I hunted it down and that's all it is calling for.
