    I don't know that this will help as I have not written much.  The two hubs that I have written have happened between 10pm and midnight.  With a full time job, 2 kids under 3, and an acreage to maintain I don't have much time. So, I steal what I can.  I am curious to hear from others though.

    Evenings as I am off work most evenings and weekends. Most anytime when I'm not working.

    Usually in the morning I read through my feeds, and write a bit. Then in the evening, later on when it's quiet, I'll write some as well and perhaps read some too. I actually like having the TV on in the background sometimes, or music playing.

    I do most of my writing at night. That's when things calm down and I can actually think.

    Very, very late at night when my son is asleep already. But I keep a pen and notebook with me at all times, so I can jot down ideas. I also bring my trusty Vivienne Tam mini notebook with me anywhere so if there is a chance to write or check on the forums smile I can do so.

    I write whenever I can.

    Right now, I am writing a chapter for a serial that will go on Big Closet Top Shelf, called Second Sight, I have just finished a 3,000 word entry into the Tomorrow anthology at The Authors Haunt and am writing a Sci-fi short (well, it might end up long) called Sigmus II, which is supposed to be light-hearted if not comedic, that will be going on Fictioneer.

    Since I'm not working, there's plenty of time for me to write and I try and make as much use of that as I can.

    Mostly mornings, but sometimes trusty pen n paper is good for jotting down ideas an thoughts, specially since most TV programmes are crappy these days.

    Since I work from home I have to build in some structure to my days.  The "business-day" is for "real" work (and occasional forum popping-on to break things up).  From mid-evenings (during television) on is when I have free time for things like Hub-writing.  Sometimes I'll write the weekends if I have some time.  Of course, I'm not writing a bunch of Hubs a week either...

    Writing for me takes place at any time I feel like it.  lol  Actually, night time is the best (especially in the moonlight) or sitting out basking in the sun.

    I write notes compulsively throughout the day, when I can snatch a moment. But I usually finish all other material and work on my novel bettween 9pm and 3am gmt.

    I'm most productive first thing in the morning or late at night. I can never dedicate a full day to writing, my brain needs to switch to something else to stay fresh. Lately late nights have been best.

    I write all the time. lists, notes, memeos, things to remember, things to do, plans for school, worksheets, grades, reports, grocery lists,household inventory, Dr.'s appointments, ... In my head..its always a story. Like, when I walk into a room, Im thinking..."she walks in, exhausted from the day. Sweat and dirt dried onto her neck in a layer so thick it could be used as adobe. Children in the distance are wailing that they are hungry. She vaugely remebers a time when she could come and go as she pleased. Life wasnt such a chore. Now, every day is test of her survival skills. Every day is carefully planed to survive the oncoming winter....."
    crap like that...its all the time, 24/7/365 except on leap years..it wakes me up in the middle of the night, it never ever stops....but when do I actually write out loud, for other people to see? when I feel like it.

    I usually get ideas during the day, and dream at night. I keep a book nearby so that I can jot down these thoughts so I don't forget. Then I can enlarge upon them later. This was a tip I got from a famous writer.

    And no, I don't sleep much.

    I like to write whenever I have a quiet moment which could be any time of the day ... if I'm not working.  I have to be sensitive to my little girl who will verbally voice her objection that "You are spending too much time on the computer."  I try to be sensitive to her.

    Well, i have posted 2 hubs in 5 hours. Maybe i'm just enthusiastic, but its in the evening over here in the U.K. Before this website i would write poetry etc. sometimes very late at night when i can actually think properly or am just on a role. Or alternatively i write on a bus, in the park, sometimes just scribbling down descriptions of the places i see and hear. It's annoying though, because half the time i dont have a pen or any paper, so i find myself trying to compose a short piece in my head which gives me a rather 'interesting' expession that people misconstrue as constipation. Haha.
