other than this i would say try to learn all you can regarding the basics and once you have those then you will be able to go forward fully aware of what you can and can't do plus you will have the satisfaction of knowing you're doing it all in the pathway of masters who have worked before you. just never become discouraged in yourself as nothing worth doing comes fast or easy! slow and steady gets you where you want to be in the end.
This is good information !! As someone who is in the learning process and considering conjuring, this is good, concise and insightful post.
