Not too insecure today...well, not much (ahem).
My new novel, Rising Tide, is finished! That is, the first draft is finished. Now I'm going back killing all the little darlings I thought were so brilliant and unique at the time, and smacking my forehead because I forgot that so-and-so did that - and now I'll have to change something later on. But I like this process - now the plot's down, I think I use another part of my brain with the editing. My trouble now is finding people who'll be honest enough to critique it for me :-( (any takers?)
The title comes from the proverb: A Rising Tide Lifts All Boats. It's about traditional commercial fishermen, and it's set in Portugal.
Here're some pictures that have inspired me:
