    I usually get my inspiration from my kitty kat or my wife or both.For me it is late at night or early in the morning when everyone is asleep.

      I wrote you a nice comment but it seemed to disappear, so here we go again.
      Funny but I thougt you was a woman, yes I know that's bad grammar but it kinda fitted.Guess I should get myself a wife, sounds like a better deal than a husband, but kitty..

    Sounds odd, but I usually do my best writing in bed late at night on my laptop. I work during the day, and pick my daughter up from school on the way home. Then it's homework, cooking dinner etc and catching up with chores etc. By the time all this is over, I spend and hour or two with my partner and daughter. Once she is tucked up in bed, I get some me time, which usually involves a long hot bath and into bed to catch up on e-mails and hubs.

    I am off work for a couple of days, so it is great to be able to spend some time on hubpages in the day. (It's usually dark outside when I am hubbing!).

    Though I get ideas while my eyes are open, the exact words to express them through written work, comes only after I pray or study the Word of God. Writing for me is more like team work. I tell Him my ideas, He helps me with correct words smile That's why, for me writing is a gift from God.

    I would say around 4pm.  This must be the best time for me, because if I'm not writing, I'm doing artwork at this same time.

    The when is either first thing in the morning or in the wee hours in the middle of the night.  The where is at the computer.  I used to be able to write mini-novels in longhand on legal pads, but now my "pen" is a keyboard. Save a tree! Made no sense to waste paper only to, basically, write the piece all over again typing it into Word or a text capsule.

    For writing, there shouldn't really be any specific time period to write, you should just do it whenever you have time off. Certainly there may be times wherein writing during the early hours of the day or the middle of the night or somewhere in-between will work better than other times, but you have to test every time period at least once.
    For me, I seem to constantly get my best writing done just before I hit the sack.

    Things seem to click better for me at night when everyone else is in bed.  What is funny is that I have the house to myself during the first half of the day as well, since my wife is a teacher and my kids are all in school, but I still write more at night.  The best place for me is at my desk at home.

    At sunset, on the beach when all that can be heard is the waves crashing on the sand. It's not often that I get the pleasure of being in that place though.
