"Alice Kuipers' video course for me was a brilliant find: I can load her course chapters on my phone to read on my commute, and the course content itself is packed full of advice on time management for writers. I work long hours in my day job - so it's always a challenge to carve out time for my writing.

Okay - back to my phone to re-listen to one of her chapters, so I'll be ready to hit the ground running with the draft of my magnus opus tonight!"
