Move the else: to the bottom, and indent the other four lines to match up with print original.
Your code is close to the instructions. If it still does not work, review the instructions and check against your code. If still stuck, post what you have in a new reply and we can look at it some more.
In an earlier instruction we are asked to asign, word, first and pyg concatenated (as a single string) to new_word. This instruction asks us to re-assign a slice (a copy of part of the string) to the same variable. This slice will include all the letters in the new string except the very first one.
