I recently tried to wire a outside light to a switch inside my home. I'm using 12/2 wire and it seems to be kicking the breaker. What am I doing wrong?

My guess is you have the switch across the line somehow,
instead of in series with it.

How is it wired now? Does it trip the breaker all the time,
or only when you turn the switch on, and if the latter,
does the outlet work before you flip the switch.
