How do you maintain a consistent writing schedule with a full-time job and kids around at home?
Its tough, but possible. For me, I have discovered that I have to set aside time (usually early in the morning or right before bed) if I want to consistently write. I gave up on trying to write entire articles in one day (just wasn't possible when you are busy haha). With that said, I usually write all of my articles on Microsoft Word and come back to it multiple times a week until its finished. That's the only thing that works for me!
Welcome to HubPages by the way
That is a great suggestion. I get a chance to write at night but mornings have been under rush. Probably I can try to use a little part of the morning. You are right getting it done in one day is hard.
Thank you for the warm welcome.
There are two approaches that seem to work. One is to find a niche of time. The other method is to make an effort to get in some writing, even a few minutes worth, a day. If you see the niche time usually gets bumped my more important matters then go to the get someing, anything, written method. Good luck.
Thanks for responding to my question. You are right; sometimes it is hard to write timely using the niche of time approach. The second approach seems plausible. A mixture might be feasible as well. Thanks once again. Have a wonderful week.

What kind of schedule do you keep to ensure progress with your writing?Do you keep routine hours? Do you just write when the feeling hits? Or do you set aside specific days? What tactics do you use to ensure you keep yourself moving forward?

When is your most productive time to write and describe why?Although answered about 17 months ago, I am asking again because I think it broadens our awareness of the benefits and drawbacks for choosing - "early morning when I'm fresh", or "late at night when the family is quiet."

If you have a full time job/career unrelated to writing, how much time do you set aside for writing?

I've had time lately but zero urge to.. I know I need to get into it and somehow force myself into a routine. Any suggestions?

Do you take the weekend off from writing?Perhaps not all together - when inspiration strikes it strikes, after all. But do you take the weekend off from hubbing, blogging, general online writing, rather. Do you feel it effects your readers?
