8 week podcast-taught writing course

48 lessons over an 8-week period will give you the tools to write the novel you’ve dreamed of.

From the website:

Would you like to write a novel? Do you have ideas for stories but low motivation or self-confidence? Have you been writing for years but lately you’ve been feeling burnt out, and the fun has gone? Would you like to write more but you can’t find the time or energy?

The Couch to 80k Writing Boot Camp is a free writing podcast that delivers a complete 8 week fiction writing course over 48 episodes. All it asks of you is 10 minutes writing a day. Each episode teaches you new writing skills through a 10 minute exercise – it even times you while you do the exercise, so once the podcast finishes, you’re done for the day. No homework!
