Mojo Mike (aka Mr. Mike Rock) immediately became my hero when i read this blog article from him. It very eloquently debunks the modern neo-witchcraft *myth* that spells you write yourself are more powerful and more effective than ones you get out of a book. I heartily recommend giving this article a read for anyone so interested:
Of course, practitioners who have many years - if not decades - of experience rarely need to crack a spellbook (different topic for a different day, perhaps), but that type of hands-on mastery only comes from doing hundreds of "pre-fabricated," traditional, and/or published spells, and thus building their magical repetiore through the trial and error of others who paved the way.
Beginners and advanced-beginners need to stick to spell kits and spells from reputable authors, in my opinion. Your mileage my vary.

I created my first spell about 2 weeks ago and i think it worked. I suppose the best thing to do would be use colours, herbs etc that corresponed with your spell. I have created a job to bring jobs my way. I carved a green candle with 3 types of jobs and put it on my alter and as the candle burns each night i meditate and see myself in one of these jobs. I wrote my own spell to say with it aswell, just a simple rhyme about how i want the job and the job shall be mine etc. It's sort-of easy in a way. But you have some knoledge and truly believe in what your doing.
