Such an interesting question.

I was doing a campfire set this past weekend for family and friends and I'd intersperse my own songs in with the standards. Never mind that the audience likely had not heard my songs, I could 'feel' as I sang that my some of songs weren't quite there yet. They didn't quite sit well with the classics, not on par...

While my writing was good, better than anyone in the audience could do, no doubt, but not great - yet.
