I tried to push my project to Github but it was a no-go. I had cloned the Skillcrush hangman project so it was still assigned to their repo (confirmed with git remote -v). So I needed to remove the origin (git remote rm origin) and then add my repo and push.
To avoid this next time: 1) Fork, then clone 2) Think for myself. I’ve forked and cloned many repos so far but I was just following the directions. I didn’t think about it. And when it was messed up, I didn’t think my way out of it. I was also scared to remove anything. Fortunately, Skillcrush has great instructors and Sharon walked me through it.
Always be learning.
