Just wanted to stop by, after a looooong vacation, and talk about something important. The Sorcerous Word and how it is not to be used lightly. Or, it's not just how you say it, it is what you say.
You see, it is very important to understand that there is no Universal Translator to the world of the divine. Often times, when doing magick,it is not uncommon for the new comer to be interested in shortcutting the spell craft and going straight to execution of a badly worded working.
It is also not unheard of for well seasoned magickians go become.L.A.Z.Y.
Same thing applies to your workings. Please, keep it short, sweet, simple, and precise. When you speak to entities, even yourself, you are creating a program of actions and consequences with magic. And magic takes the route of least resistance. If it has no clear destination, it wanders and goes off track. If it has conflicting instructions, it fizzles or goes haywire.
And for the love of all things in Creation, make contracts clear and precise. AND NEVER PROMISE WHAT YOU CANNOT DO. AND NEVER ASK FOR WHAT YOU CANNOT HANDLE.
