In TikZ, I am trying to create a point with text in its northeast. I know that you are supposed to use something like \node[anchor=northeast] {Whatever}, but this just gives me an error. Here's my code:

    \filldraw [blue] (0,0) circle(2pt) node[anchor=northeast] {Origin};

Is there some sort to TikZ library or something for that? Please let me know.

north east, not northeast. Anchor names in TikZ have spaces.
