Sing when you're nervous

After a year or so of reading my poems and songs without tunes at the folk club here in Montrose I took the plunge and went for a song this week. My pal Verona and I sang one of my songs that does have a tune - 'Light o'er the sea'. We were fairly nervous but we survived and it was kind of fun really. We did it bothy ballad style and people were very nice and complimentary (or kept criticism to themselves). We may do it again...I have found tunes suddenly appearing recently so now several of the songs have tunes or half-tunes or half-an-idea-for-a-tune. It's fun and something I never thought I'd do.
