uf cable wiring from shed to house

Need help..Installed a uf cable (12 gauge) from shed to house. I temporary
put plug on one end and put in washer outlet . the other end i want to go to
switch and outlet from the shed doorway and I put a piece of same cable from that outlet to go to a receptacle in ceiling which I can plug a light into
What is correct wiring? I connected black to brass and white to silver.
When plugged in light goes on and when I click off on switch, i blow a breaker.

Please buy the book wiring simplified. It will answer all your questions and tell you what else you did wrong.

In your case you connected a white neutral wire to a switch. This is wrong.
