97 Geo Prizm won't start, undriven for 3 weeks Sign In

Hi! My car won't start.
97 Geo Prizm, 170ish miles.
I haven't driven her in about 3 weeks, it's been cold/foggy/dewy here (living on coast), if that means anything.
When I try to turn the car on she shudders violently and the engine won't start-but all the little lights are working fine. Just shudders and jumps and I didn't want to hold the key any longer. I tried three times.
Could the battery maybe just need recharging? Any ideas?
If you know basically anything about cars (like I don't) you probably have some kind of advice! A little help please.

Not sure if your describing a cranking or starting problem. Probably a good idea to have the battery tested and make sure the connections are clean and tight first.
