Things to keep in mind:
The secret of embellishment.

Q: Are any of the tricks you pull off devised by yourself, or are they part of a continuum?

A: Both. It’s a cumulative art. You learn basic techniques, and then you embellish. Sometimes you invent a plot that’s original. Sometimes it’s the patter. Sometimes it’s the secret equipment or sleight that’s original. The more you know and the better grounded you are in the basic techniques, the more you’ll be able to branch out.
