Hey guys. Let's say I have a string a1="a really long string............", as soon as I post this, I get the error mentioned in the title.

How do I go about fixing this? Appreciate the help!

You need to put a double quote (") at the end of the line to achieve your goal. You can also use """ and get away with it.

Try this:
 

""" a very long string ...... 

....that can span multiple lines

"""

Let me know if that helps!
