# What do I write in on the spellcasting sheet besides the spell? [duplicate]

Do I need to write any kind of description or just the spell name. How do I know if I need to mark the "prepared" bubble or not? Also, to clarify, I write my first level spells in the first spell level slot. Furthermore, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to write in the "Slots total" part of the spell level bars.

• Have you talked to your DM about filling out a character sheet? – Rykara Aug 3 at 0:19
• What rules have you read? What specifically about the rules is confusing you? Though we are here to help and can answer a variety of questions, we're not here to read the book to you. We do expect you to have read the rules and to do a bit of research yourself and it's helpful if you explain what exactly is confusing you or how the rules don't answer the question for you. – Purple Monkey Aug 3 at 0:20
