Casting is not where you begin in the craft, this is why your spells are not working. Magic is not so simple as swish and flick and say some magic words. For one thing, you must use common sense, maturity, and intelligence when selecting a spell to ensure you are at least casting a valid spell rather than a fantasy spell. You also need proficiency in the basics of magic and an understanding of the nature of magic and how it actually works which is much different from what you have been exposed to in current media. Look into the beginner areas of the site recommended in your welcome to SOM mail that you received upon joining the site. They are newbie central located on the home page and the articles tab. You might also try searching "magic basics" in the search engine located in the upper right of the page.
