Hi Hammony!

You simply need to do another git add, like so:

> git add chapter1.txt

Keep in mind the git add, git commit, and git push commands can be repeated - ad nauseam - every time you add to or modify your code in any significant and notable way (think of every add/commit/push cycle as creating a new restore point in your repository)!?!

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
