I almost have it figured out. I am just not sure about one final thing. My annotation after the citation is indented way to far to the right. I would like to be able to move the indent of just the annotation.

Here is my main.tex file

\documentclass[man,donotrepeattitle]{apa6}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{letterpaper, margin=1in}

\usepackage[natbibapa]{apacite}
\usepackage{mathptmx}% http://ctan.org/pkg/mathptmx
\bibliographystyle{apacannx}


\usepackage{fancyhdr}  
\pagestyle{fancy}

\title{Your APA6-Style Manuscript}
\shorttitle{Your APA6-Style Manuscript}
\author{Me} 
\affiliation{University}
%\abstract{Your abstract here} 

\begin{document} 
\maketitle
\renewcommand{\refname}{Annotated bibliography}
\nocite{carlson1984s} 
\bibliography{sample}
\end{document}
}

Here is my sample.bib file

@article{carlson1984s,
title={},
author={},
journal={},
volume={},
number={},
pages={},
year={},
publisher={},
doi={},
annote={},
annotate={}
}

    Welcome to the World of LaTeX. As a very new user, you don't know what is going on yet. That is why your question is pretty unclear to me. Have a look at LaTeX for complete novices and Using LaTeX to write a PhD Thesis. Those are excellent starting points and you will be able to redo your question in a few days :-) – Johannes_B Feb 6 '17 at 17:35

    If the title is on page 2, what's on page 1? – cfr Feb 7 '17 at 3:07

    The code misses the very very last closing brace. Apart from that it is very good considerung you just started. Keep up and don't feel intimidated by the locals :-) – Johannes_B Feb 7 '17 at 7:19

    @ScottCampbell - Yes -- preferably, with a real bib entry. – Mico Feb 7 '17 at 17:35

You asked,

How to I get it to say annotated bibliography instead o[f] references?

Issue the instruction

\renewcommand{\refname}{Annotated bibliography}

somewhere before the \bibliography{example} directive. Placing the instruction in the preamble is best.

You also asked,

How do I basically get rid of the second page?

Based on @Johannes_B's very helpful explanatory comment :-), I assume that what you want is not so much get rid of the entire second page but the repeated title on the second page. This may be achieved by providing the document class option donotrepeattitle.

A full MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,letterpaper,man, 
       margin=1in,natbibapa,donotrepeattitle]{apa6}

\bibliographystyle{apacannx}
\renewcommand{\refname}{Annotated bibliography}

\usepackage{fancyhdr}  
\pagestyle{fancy}

\title{Your APA6-Style Manuscript}
\shorttitle{Your APA6-Style Manuscript}
\author{Me} 
\affiliation{University}
%\abstract{Your abstract here} 

\begin{document} 
\maketitle

\nocite{carlson1984s} 
\bibliography{example}
\end{document}

    Considering how much the quesion improved, i can overlook that the example is not fully compilable. Helpers here definitely have the knowledge to make it so. donotrepeattitle is what he needs. – Johannes_B Feb 7 '17 at 7:18

    @Johannes_B - Thanks for this! I will update my answer with this piece of information. – Mico Feb 7 '17 at 7:26

    @ScottCampbell - The message about the unused global option would appear to be a bug in the way the document class keeps track of the global options; for sure, the geometry package is laoded. and package code does know what to do with this option. – Mico Feb 7 '17 at 15:10

    @ScottCampbell - Glad you've found a TeX distribution that's working for you. – Mico Feb 7 '17 at 15:58

    I decided to not upvote answers of high-rep users (there are plenty to vote for answers), unless i ask them to write an answer. Your answer has no upvotes for twelve hours, which is unfair. +1 from my side. – Johannes_B Feb 7 '17 at 19:21
