I would like to find out from other Freelance Writers - what their average day for writing looks like as a matter of interest. What time do you start writing? How many breaks do you take? How many articles / blogs / chapters do you write on average per day? When do you finish writing for the day?
Instead of a specific schedule, I aim for at least one article/hub per day. I try to work on it on my lunch break at work or after putting the kids to bed.
I like to start as early as possible and finish as late as I can manage, I juggle a lot of projects at one time, so I don't lose interest in any of my material and every time I go back to it, I can look at it with fresh eyes. I take short but regular breaks as I don't ever want to make writing a chore, and I primarily do it because I love it. I aim for about 4000 words a day, but during school holidays I am lucky to manage a couple of hundred. If I don't ever feel like writing I just go off and do something else, a lot of my work is also spent just thinking about it, especially my fictional work.
That's a great point about not making writing out to be a chore, but rather something that you love doing, and doing it when you want to. 4000 words a day is very ambitious...I think I have quite a way to go before I get there, but something to work towards at least!
As a freelance hubber, I would like to think and pre-plan contents for the hub I am going to write on, in order to get a good written hub
I write when I want. I don't when I don't . When I don't feel like writing, I've got plenty of other productive things I can do.
Not that I actually do any of them of course...
You're lucky! I think I've got it down as to which hours of the day I am most productive / creative, and which hours of the day I can use to do research, marketing, comments, etc.

Is there a good way to search for hubbers who are also freelance writers? It would also be great to be able to search on writing rates and favorite topics.If not, I think this would be a useful feature to add.
