Spellwork Through Poetry, Lesson 3

Writing Out Intent in Prose

Objective: explain in detail what you want and how you plan to attain it.

In this class, I would like you to think of yourself as an architect. Last month, we discussed what our intents were. These are the blueprints to our spells. Now, we are going to begin the building process, starting with a sturdy foundation. We will mold our intentions into prose, adding as much detail as possible. The more detail we have, the sturdier our foundation and the easier it will be to write our poetic spells later.

For your assignment, please take the intentions you wrote- the ones you will be casting a spell for- and write them in paragraph form.

Example:

(Example from last month: My intent is to go to grad school

What do I want– I want to go to grad school. I want to deepen my knowledge of my field and expand my knowledge into other fields to incorporate them into my career.

Why do you want it– Going to grad school will challenge me in a positive way. I will be learning something new which I can apply to my everyday now. I want to give myself as many opportunities for growth as possible both in my current career and other fields.

How will this result affect your life– Grad school will make my life intriguing because I will be starting something new. It will make my life more hectic because I will be adding to my current workload. In the end, it will lead to more money coming into the house. And knowledge is never a waste of time.

Grad school will provide more opportunities for mental and financial growth. I will be casting this spell.)

I want to go to grad school at NCSU and get my MA in Cultural Anthropology with a focus on Deaf Culture. I want to deepen my knowledge of Deaf culture and expand my knowledge into the field of anthropology to incorporate it into my career as a teacher of the Deaf. Going to grad school will challenge me in a positive way. I will be learning something new, anthropology, which I can apply to my everyday now as a ToD. I want to give myself as many opportunities for growth as possible both in my current career and other fields. My job as a teacher, while enjoyable, is not easy. I do not want to burn out so quickly that I lose my passion for Deafness completely.  Going to grad school at NCSU will teach me better time management skills since I will be balancing my current career, school, and home life. It will also, however, make my life intriguing because I will be starting something new which I have been wanting to try for a long time. It will make my life more hectic because I will be adding to my current workload but I will be forced to find a balance in life, which I desperately need. This aspect will help me grow personally in an insurmountable way. In the end, getting my MA will lead to more money coming into the house, which will lead to more opportunities for further growth. And knowledge of any kind is never a waste of time.
