The most excellent Damon Lindelof (Creator of Lost, Watchmen, and The Leftovers) has kindly offered to share a serialized story with NextDraft readers to help us, and him, through the quarantine. The first 14 chapters are here.

+ And if you missed it yesterday, I got a ton of reaction to my faux Facebook family’s wonderful pandemic experiences: “Like so many of the other happy, well-adjusted, quarantining families you’ve been seeing on Facebook, mine has been busy learning new skills, in between hyper-productive Zoom school sessions, socially distanced dog walks (timed to hit just the perfect sunset for a family selfie), and of course, taking advantage of this extra time to bond. What a gift!” One reader reacted thusly: “A gift for you to be quarantined??! WTF is wrong with you?! I asked to be removed from your biased publication two weeks ago! Namaste!” (Just to give you and idea of what we’re dealing with out there…)
