It's quite simple. You place yourself where you want to add the footnote. Go to insert / footnote, and you'll see a number 1 that is linked to a footnote.

If you are using word, then go to the insert menu,, reference, footnote. Then type your reference into the footnote as author, title of work (place of publication: publisher, year of publication) page number.

im also confused, because we were told in brackets after every quotation, to put in the page reference and the name of the novel, so surely i dont need both?

You either do footnotes or in brackets, not both. And yes, everything you use must go into your bibliography. Bear in mind that in references such as footnotes, the author's first name comes first, in the bibliography, it comes second.

ok thank you, so the name of the book first?

also, we have 2000 words, excluding quotations, but would critics quotations count, so could i exclude them from the word count, because i really need to shorten it..?

no, the author comes first.... so Dracula would be 'Bram Stoker, Dracula, (London: Puffin, 1994) p251' , however in a bibliograhy, it would be listed as 'Stoker, Bram,' and then the rest. And if quotations are excluded, then that means anything that is not your own words, so yes, critical quotations can be excluded.
