I am new to all of this. However, I am almost positive I once made it rain when I was younger. I was in class and I really wanted it to rain and I made up some chant/spell that I wrote down and kept chanting in my head. Few moments later, it rained. After this, I didn't get further involved with magic and I also got rid of the paper (not intentionally, though). Now, I wish I had it again because I want to see if it would work again.
Now, I wonder, if I were to write my own spells...what state of mine should I be in? Should I think hard about the words, or let the passion do it for me? Hope someone can help me out.
