PRACTICE IS NOT A FOUR-LETTER WORD
Practice for me is a joy as well as an absolute necessity.
Maybe it comes from my love of music, but I really enjoy the careful repetition of practice.
I also enjoy the satisfaction of knowing my magic performances, even the small ones, have been polished like the gems they are.
A good magic effect is 5% mechanics and 95% presentation.
Don't rush it- enjoy the practice. It's an important part of your art!
