Hi Alison,

I'm guessing you are in Select Item mode, ie, where you are when you 
first create a text frame.

Either switch to Edits Contents mode (there's an icon on the toolbar, or 
double-click the frame), or use the Story Editor (Ctrl+Y, or click the 
icon on the toolbar, or right-click the frame for the context menu, 
where you find Edit Text).
