The most excellent Damon Lindelof has kindly offered to share a serialized story with NextDraft readers to help us, and him, through the quarantine. The first 11 chapters are here.

+ Both my mom and my dad called to say they liked my Open Letter to NYC. (Compliments don’t come easy in the Pell household.)

+ And, there’s time to attempt to get your cultural reference into Damon’s story. Submit your ideas here. (One of my ideas is making into tomorrow’s chapter. So it can’t be that hard!)
