when I preview my workspace I'm not getting no response . Am I doing the story the correct way?

var firstNoun = prompt ("GeekHotel"); var firstVerb = prompt ("running"); var firstAdjective = prompt (" running like a vegas show"); alert("Are you done?");

Your prompt should be asking a question. var noun1 = prompt("Please enter a noun"); Then when you have all of the variables combine them and output to the screen.

var statement = noun1 + " Hello " + verb1 + " to the woods " + noun2 + " who dare " + adj + " what car."; document.write(statement);

Did you save your file? When in the Workspace, press CTRL+S on Windows and CMMD+S on a Mac.

This was this issue I was having - the file was not saving.

yes I've saved the file in the workspace and when I go to preview it I don't have no feedback

Are you pressing the eye icon to the top-right corner of the workspace?

Did you put the name of your js file inside your html file using <script src="your_name.js"></script> ?

I just tried

var adjective = prompt("Please type an Adjective!");

var verb = prompt("Please type a Verb!");

var noun = prompt("Please type a Noun!");

alert("Ready for a result?")

var message = "There once was a " + adjective ;

message += " Programmer who wanted to use JavaScript to " + verb;

message += " the " + noun;

document.write(message);

this worked! I'm not sure I did right.. but if it helps you..
