can someone help I’m stuck

I guess you could use strings or lists for the set-up.
Like

alphabet = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
message = """xuo jxuhu! jxyi yi qd unqcfbu ev q squiqh syfxuh. muhu oek qrbu je tusetu yj? y xefu ie! iudt cu q cuiiqwu rqsa myjx jxu iqcu evviuj!"""

And then you might make a caesar_encode function to do the Caesar cipher encoding, with the message you want to encode and the offset amount as parameters.
I used loops, indices, .find for strings, % len(alphabet), and .join for strings in that function when I did the project.
