1) Find a big list of magical correspondences in a book that you obtained legally. For example buy a copy of Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft or borrow it from the library. Pro-tip: Don’t download it for free and don’t sell illegal pdfs of it. Even better develop your own correspondances or use some from your tradition. If you are actually an initiated Wiccan (or some other tradition) you may have some traditional ones.
2) Decide on your spell idea for the day, perhaps get a hint by looking at the days of the week, seasonal and astrological correspondences for ideas—or just wing it, something you want to write about or answer a request. Pro tip: Don’t just rip a spell out of a spell a day manual or a published spell book everyday. Those books are for sale so the authors can make a profit off their work!
3) Select some stuff off the correspondence charts for that kind of goal to combine for the spell instructions. Then start to think of some wording. You might buy yourself a rhyming dictionary while you are at it, to give that slightly more professional look. Pro tip: Don’t hunt around on the internet for someone else’s spell post it and not credit them.
4) Write your own original work! How novel! Pro tip: don’t pretend that some well known author that doesn’t work for your site wrote a post for your site.
5) Test the spell. Did it work? Have a few other people try it. Does it work? Pro tip: Don’t just post drivel that has never been tested as advice for others. Did you ever try the spells you are posting? Did they work? If either answer is no, don’t throw it up in your “school” or as advice.*
6) Post your own original spell! Pro tip: perhaps share a story of how it worked for you or one of your testers.
*If you are not passing it off as a lesson or advice its fine to post your newly written untested spell, just say so. This is aimed at people dispensing advice rather than at individuals sharing the occasional idea or spell from their favorite book with citations that they are thinking of trying.
