Yesterday I wrote to the folks at the Vinyl Cafe to confirm when my concert would be aired. All I knew was that it was happening in October.
Know what? It's a damn good thing I wrote when I did. The broadcast is in a week and a half, not in a month. I actually might have missed it if I hadn't written to check.
My first reaction was excitement, because YAY, it's actually going to happen!
Then I got a bit nervous, because damn, do I want the entire country listening in on my most nerve-wracking show?
So I made a Facebook event, updated my music web site, and got the wheels turning on all those things songwriters fret about. Now I'm just going to let things happen. The concert is already recorded, so I don't have to worry about messing up the performance. I just need to listen.
With that in mind, why am I still so damn nervous?
