I have no doubt that this book will help some people, but I'd like to offer an alternative for those whose hearts sink at the phrase "time management"*...

NaNo. Just do it, jump in, make yourself so determined that you will finish, no matter what, that you do it. Then do it again, next year. After a few years, you realise that if you can do it for one month out of the year - you can do it.

I know that's a chaotic method for learning how to find time to write, but now that I understand I have executive function issues, I realise that at least for me, it's one of the only things that ever would have worked. (That, and simply figuring out what all the issues were that dogged me all my life worked wonders.)

* And no offense meant to you or anyone else who swears by it. If it works for you, great. But I've never been able to make it work, and now that I understand myself better, I doubt I ever would be able to. And when you battle something long enough, you do develop an instinctive dread of it...

~~~~~~Signature's Off~~~~~~
