Can't Edit - Pencil icon with slash through it - How do I get rid of it? - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I was just working on a project and the icon changed to a pen or a pencil with a slash through it and it won't let me do anything. I've tried selecting different tools, but it still remains. I've even exited the program completely. Other projects allow me to edit them. Does anyone have any solutions? Thank you!...

    You are working on a hidden, locked or hidden and locked layer. So, show, unlock or show and unlock it in the Layers Palette.
