This is an excerpt from my second novel. It was a complete work, but after a very brutal review from an agent I decided to embellish it. Since today’s theme is insecurity this is about a character feeling very insecure.
Christine’s face was turning red and she could actually feel the heat escaping out her ears, yet she continued to stand there like frozen in time. She knew she did not belong there and her simple frock and lack of jewelry made it clear that she was not one of them. Instead, she was an outsider or even worse she was a staff member.
