Hey what is your error ???? I tried the challenge . In 1-4 you should change the directory , use the change directory command: cd novel . In 2-4 use: git init to initialize a git repository . In 3-4 use : git add filename.txt and in 4-4 use : git commit -m “message” the -m flag stands for message .

I hope that helps

i clicked on the code challenge. It was asking about changing directories. I was able to use cd novel.
