Garage Doors Up
Just ran into the notion of "working with your garage doors up" by Robin Sloan here and I love how it does an amazing job capturing how I've been operating over the years.
Quickly looked up the author and found his debut title:
Robin Sloan is an American author. His debut novel, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, is about a laid-off Silicon Valley tech worker who begins working at a dusty bookstore with very few customers, only to start discovering one secret after another. The mysterious old books, along with the store's owner, lead to a 500‑year‑old secret society.
Ugh, I guess I'm going to have to read this now :)
