I will say, as a manager for remote teams for a while now (pre COVID-19). Business hours can be a useful gating function to encourage remote team members to not overwork themselves. Work/life balance is important, and business hours can provide a guideline framework.— Jeff McAdams (@JeffMcAdams) March 30, 2020

Just a tip from someone that was once home bound for an extended period with a broken ankle: Start your car and if possible drive it around a bit every couple of weeks or so.

I know we’re all tired of hearing/talking about it, but one thing I HAVEN’T really seen going around is advice for what happens if you DO get coronavirus (many of us will), only advice for how to try to AVOID it.

I think there's this romantic notion that writers should look inwards, and listen only to the muse, and refuse to pollute their special vision with outside influence, and I think like most romantic notions it's kinda bollocks.— Joe Abercrombie (@LordGrimdark) March 10, 2020

We tell stories in times of chaos because stories are solid ground on which we can stand as winds whip and seas rise. They're guide-ropes through thick forests, they're campfires pushing back the dark, they're doorways of much-needed egress. Tell stories. Make art. It's okay.— Chuck Wendig (@ChuckWendig) February 28, 2020
My husband & I have been raising kids for 27 years. Our eldest came to us when he was almost 3. His mom OD’d & his dad went to jail. There was no one to take care of this little boy, so we did.

In my day job I am constantly asked to predict “Cyber 9/11.” My answer is always the same. Cyber 9/11 already happened. You lived through it, are living through it.

I think that traditional sci fi so ingrained the idea of monocultures for its audience, that when we identify someone in sci fi as belonging to a fictional group, if they don't all dress and speak exactly the same it seems like a mistake.— James S.A. Corey (@JamesSACorey) January 1, 2020
