Power to shed

Thank you in advance to all who may be able to help. I really appreciate it. I would like to run power to a backyard shed for some general purpose lighting and a few receptacles. T he shed is located approximately 115 feet from the main house panel. I don't anticipate any future need for a subpanel at the shed so my plan was to install a single 20 amp circuit or 2 circuits using a shared neutral. My questions are: Is # 12 wire sufficient for the 115 ft. run back to the house panel or is #10 more appropriate? Also if I use the shared neutral system am I more likely to experience GFCI trips in the shed receptacles? Again thanks so much for your help.

It should be based on the loads you specified.

Shared neutral will not increase GFCI trips.
