<img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> I write whenever I can snatch in a few minutes let it flow! I'm a woman with a husband, four kids, a house to take care of, 2 part time jobs, 2 businesses, President of the PTO and three columns to write.
Somehow it all comes together and works. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> The hubby is really at me to start sitting down an hour each day to work on writing a book. I've got tons of ideas but so little time.

I can't even *imagine* having four kids to watch over. My sister has triplets that are 15 and a 9 year old, and it boggles my mind that she does that all and work too. I have enough trouble working when I don't have any kids at home!!

I used to write for long stretches early in the morning when I had a regular schedule. Now that I'm in a new house with a new housemate and we're still settling, I write whenever it gets quiet and I manage to sit down. I need at least 20 minutes to settle in and get going but then I can usually focus if I don't get interrupted.
I like when I can set aside a regular timeslot. My brain gets very cooperative when that happens and it's easier to move through longer written pieces for me that way.
I tend to write whenever I feel like it recently, only to find that I am not getting as much done as I had hoped. It is very frustrating and habit-forming. Not good for a champion procrastinator like myself!!

I can write anywhere, anytime. No specific schedule or time frame preferred. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> By virtue of my sleep schedule, though, it's usually afternoons, evenings, or late at night.
I pretty much write when I get the chance. If I have an assignment then I take care of that first or I at least start it first. Then I move on to other writing that I do so I can have a break from the assignment.
I usually write in the early morning or evening but sometimes things around here are quiet and I get a chance to work for a few hours during the day.
Ahhh, I'm surprised the housework gets done for all the time I spend writing on various projects. (Luckily, my husband does most of the cooking!)
