Hangman syntax

Here are the functions for my hangman. I don't know if you'd like to run it for yourself but my variables aren't updating. For example after I input a guess, the string "lettersGuessedString" doesn't get update to add the letter that was correctly. Please suggest edits to fix this.

You set incorrectGuess to 0 at line 35. You then check the value of incorrectGuess in lines 37-68. It's value will never not be 0.
