Python Hangman code

For my Computing Science controlled assessment I have been asked to create a Hangman game with Python. However, in creating the game, there has been an error message that specifies something not in my code.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "Z:\Documents\hangman.py", line 40, in <module>
generated_word = random.choice(random)
File "Q:\Pywpygam.001\Python3.2.3\lib\random.py", line 249, in choice
i = self._randbelow(len(seq))
TypeError: object of type 'module' has no len()


I don't see anything wrong in the code and it doesn't specify what's wrong. Here is my code:

import time
print('Lets play hangman')
print("""
_______
| |
| O
| |
| \- -/
| |
| / \\
| / \\
____|____
\n""")

print("""
you get 7 lives to guess the letters in the word. if you guess
incorrectly more of the hangman will appear and you lose a life. when you have
used your 7 lives, the man will have hung and you will have lost. If you guess a
correct letter, it will be show and if you guess the word without using the 7
turns, you win!
\n""")

easy_words = ['string', 'loop', 'python', 'print', 'run']
medium_words = ['module', 'input', 'logic', 'output']
hard_words = ['graphics window', 'variable', 'iteration', 'modules']
random_words = ['string', 'loop', 'python', 'print', 'run', 'graphics window', 'variable', 'iteration', 'modules', 'module', 'input', 'logic', 'output ']
time.sleep(2)
print ("What level would you like to play at? Easy, Medium or Hard or Random?")
level_of_difficulty = input()
time.sleep(2)
print ("The program is now generating your word...")
if level_of_difficulty == 'Easy':
generated_word = random.choice(easy_words)
elif level_of_difficulty == 'Medium':
generated_word = random.choice(medium_words)
elif level_of_difficulty == 'Hard':
generated_word = random.choice(hard_words)
elif level_of_difficulty == 'Random':
generated_word = random.choice(random_words)
else:
generated_word = random.choice(random_words)
guessed = ''

lives = 7


while lives > 0:

missed = 0
print()
for letter in generated_word:
if letter in guessed:
print (letter,end=' ')
else:
print ('_',end=' ')
missed = missed + 1
if missed == 0:
print ('\n\nYou win!')
quit()
break
guess=input("please guess a letter:")

guessed = guessed + guess
if guess not in generated_word:

print ('\n that letter is not in this word, your lives have been decreased by 1.')
print ('please try another letter.')
lives = lives - 1
missed = missed + 1

print('your new lives value is')

print(lives)

if lives < 7:
print(''' _______
| | ''')
if lives < 6:
print(' | O ')
if lives < 5:
print(' | | ')
if lives < 4:
print(' | \- -/ ')
if lives < 3:
print(' | | ')
if lives < 2:
print(' | / \\ ')
if lives < 1:
print(' | / \\ ')
if lives == 0:
print('___|___ ')

print('GAME OVER! You have run out of lives and lost the game')
print('the secret word was')
print(generated_word)
quit()


What I am trying to do is make it so the generated word is displayed in the window with a _, and when the letter is guessed correctly, the appropriate _ is filled with the letter.
Any ideas will be appreciated!

Answer

I think these lines are wrong:

generated_word = random.choice(random)

You are passing the module "random" as parameter. I think you should pass the variable "random_words"?
