I've been writing spells for years, Lark. I know how it goes and I'm a great writer, so people say.
I have practiced before anyone in my home new of my faith, but I only stopped practice out of maturity and respect for their want to not have witchcraft performed in their house. I still believe and all. I feel as if my knowledge level has been judged. I've been researching for almost ten years, and I officially converted to Wiccan in 2012. I appreciate all the input. I'm going to take a leap of faith and begin writing simple spells that are real, non-fluff, and that can help people out.
