Highly recommended for structuring creative work

by rdhyee (WorldCat user published 2006-04-03) Excellent Permalink
I know of no better book this Carol Lloyd's for helping one to structure one's life to support personal creative aspirations. I had not looked at it in a while and was pleasantly surprised by how relevant it remains, years after its publication.BTW, creative work is not limited to artistic expression...
