Cracking the Code

In The Doubtful Guest by flagg6 Comments

 After my surgery, I wrote furiously to keep myself sane while I dealt with rehab. I worked on a project I had started in 2006, in another rehab, after a previous string of – eventually useless- surgeries.

Then I came home, and everything changed. Exhaustion, depression, pain, anxiety and desperation, profound feelings of isolation and a loss of my sense of self all compounded to make life suck for a while. No reading. No writing. No sleep. No peace.

Today I started writing again. The block finally broke, the code unfurled and it all – just -flowed.

First, I am shocked to see how close The Forked Tongue – A Guide to Treating People Badly is to completion. It won’t be huge- but it’s nothing that’s been addressed before.

I suspect a lot of the right people are not going to like it.


 I think it’s going to matter.

  • I can’t wait.

    Then again, I’ve never been right.

    At least not in the head.

    Happy for you, and your flow.

  • I”m really glad for you! I’ve really been enjoying coming over to be around and talk with you. It always makes me very happy when I make you smile or laugh. 🙂 I’m glad you are better spirits and you are doing well. 🙂

    You might want to link PIP in your header. 🙂 I just noticed you had links up there! :0

  • Funny, that! I just recently (in the past few days, looking for an old working file of the TES-Fest logo) stumbled across The Forked Tongue – A Guide to Treating People Badly and started to read it again.

  • I am so glad to hear you are writing again. I’d wondered if the flow had stopped. You have a gift in your writings.

  • that is awesome!

    To have you not creating is a crime of nature.

    I don’t know if i am one of the ‘right people’ – but i cannot imagine not appreciating something you have done – no matter how much therapy is involved later.

    so glad to feel your energy again –


  • I look forward to reading it
