This is probably a pretty big mistake. I have no credibility when it comes to magic. But the idea of this site won’t leave me alone, so I’m going to write and see what happens. I really have no business writing about magic. I’m only just getting started with taking it seriously. But, hopefully writing about the process of sucking less at it will be of some use, if to no one else but me.

Many hours of incessant practice must be spent to acquire the requisite amount of skill; but it must be remembered if feats at card-handling could be attained for the asking there would be little in such performance to interest or profit anyone.

Don’t think this only applies to cards.
