Great git tips!

Hey Viviana, 
I think you might be connecting the double-tack to the commit part. Make sure there is a space between commit and the two hyphens.

git commit --verbose

What is the result of running this command in the terminal?

git config --global core.editor
You should get an output similar to that, but with ‘atom’ instead of nvim.
