At the start of the Covid-19 outbreak in early 2020, a bunch of us decided - between all the self-isolation, social distancing, and the increasingly noisy background level of worry and sadness - that if we have to be stuck indoors, we might as well do something fun!
So on April 4th, 2020 and at super-short notice (under three weeks!), The District was written as a special edition of  Novel in a Day (Novella in a Day).
