If you understand why it should work and believe it will work, it more than likely will work :) It's a nice spell and I don't see why it wouldn't, and even if you haven't read any books and your understanding is limited, there's still a good chance it'll go fine if you put time, effort and energy into it :D
The thing is I don't know why it should work, I just know you have to believe and be positive. Focusing that positive energy to the spell. But beyond that I know nothing and I don't really wanna read any books (unless it's manga lol.)
You're not going to get very far if you don't do research. I'm sorry to say, but reading books and articles is a significant part of learning about magic and spell casting. That's not bad for me, because I love research, but I can understand why it can be difficult for others.
I would go check out the General Info section of the forums and read the pinned threads. They are really good for beginners.
