I've been under the weather for the past while. I hope to post the results of the 2017 "Readers' Choice Inspirational Canadian Magician of the Year" award in the near future.

What tips do you have for new magicians?

Evelyn Matlin has a great post up at Perfect Magic Then and Now titled "A Few Tips For New Magicians."  It covers a lot of good points that newcomers to magic should think about as they start performing for others.

My favourite from the post:
  1.  Let’s say someone else or a magician comes to entertain you and you know the trick they are doing. What do you do and what do you say?
  2. Correct Answer: Nothing. Not even to your best friend. Even after the show. If you have to tell someone, tell your mother.

Of course, I think that answer applies to a lot of situations that kids can get into.  Always tell your mother!

Do you have any other pointers or general magic etiquette guidelines to add?
