    @PurpleMustache dropping cards and having to pick them up must suck when you're practicing in the blindfolded stage. Interesting approach though. I will give that a try.

    @HaveOuts aww I really wanted to read what happened on the early morning of December 12 when the andromeda galaxy was properly aligned with Alpha Lyrae.

    @renome I'm not sure exactly how to tell you what stage I am at flourishing. I guess I would answer that by saying that I'm still at the stage of learning the moves of others and not yet creating my own. The last flourish I tried to learn was the Jackson 5 from Trilogy. It seems challenging enough to keep my busy for a while. I memorized it, but I can't get it done smoothly, especially in phase 2 (Sybilism). I suppose practice is the only way to fix this

    Dan and Dave said that they practiced 'at least' 8-10 hours a day (on school days) and had a mental schedule. It is sort of good to get into a routine but you should obviously be doing cardistry because you enjoy it, not because you feel you have to.

    To practice, I just split the flourish into sections (unless it is really short). For example I recently learnt akira which is on the Trilogy. I have not got it as smooth as I would like yet, but I practiced the Tornado part, and got that smooth, then once you have that down, practice the rest. But at the end of the day it is just practice.

    What sybil do you practice?

    I practice all day( yesterday I practiced 9 hours, I was taking time), I have really ****y cards, that I take everywhere. I do flourishes when watch TV, play computer, I go out with cards. I love it.

    Sorry for my English.

    I typically practice every day in front of a mirror or camera. Recording yourself on camera is especially helpful because you can watch yourself the way others see you - and improve your weaknesses accordingly.
