My wife has long since declared herself "off limits" as an audience. I use my daughters or their class mates to practice on, after judicious practice on my own. Even the youngest kid can pick up on a dropped coin.

Abc,

I was just kidding besides pardon my bad english Smile
well I guess it`s still a long way to go before I perform in front of someone
The impossible things are often the untried.

Magic is not what you see.
It's about what you make others see.

The performance is the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow...

When you see the reaction and get the applause, this is what makes the practice worth your time.

I wasn't joking. You should go the discos LOL.

If the issue is performing and it is important that you do that as soon as you can try this.
Learn a few self working card routines and practise patter to them. Make sure they are entertaining.
Then start performing them.
In the meantime you will have hours to practise sleights and later incorporate new material into your performance.
Dont book shows with only card routines though it is very boring. Just go to the pub or your mothers house and show it to people so you can get used to it.

I carry a haunted key and a disappearing silk while at work, especially with the smaller children. Before anyone thinks I'm exceptionally wierd, I'm a police officer and I've found magic is a great way to make scared kids forget about their problems for a while. At first I was really nervous about doing any sort of routine, but my partner convinced me to start and I'm really happy I did.

The best thing is probably to have a magi-friend who knows the same things you do - he can give you feedback on what you're doing wrong or right. Smile
