You start dragging out the feathering, and that's when you're wearing your clutch too much. If you're new to MT, it won't take long until you get the hang of doing just what you need for a smooth shift.
I do, do it and I have been driving it for a while so I have it down, but there's always room to learn more. Good looks on the answer, I just wanted to 100% make sure that it won't be harming it because I am learning a lot on this thread!!
