i don't know what it wants me to do

itś telling me to ¨commit the staged file, with a message of "Add chapter 1". Rather than letting Git launch an editor, specify your commit message on the command line: use the -m command line option, and specify your message between "quotation marks".

It seems now that you've added a file to the staging area, they just want you to commit it with a message. You always have to provide a message for a commit so you and other developers know what the changes are about. Vim (or whatever text editor is configured to open) will open if you don't provide a message. To provide a message (so the editor doesn't bother you about it) you have to use the -m flag. For example git commit -m "commit message"
