Mine is 9-11pm Central European Time Monday-Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. I golf Thursday nights and take Saturdays off.

When's yours? And what effects do you bring? (The German beer is new ... :))

Mine is constant now. I turned off the world so my writing time is all I have left. I like it.

Mine is just whenever I'm not busy. I usually write on some weekend nights around 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. (That's only if I'm working hard on finishing what I'm writing.)

Mornings, 7:30 to 9:00 EDT, then again later in the day when it suits me. Usually by mid-afternoon I'm incapable of producing anything worth keeping.

Maryn, whose morning work ain't so hot, either

We're supposed to be writing? :) I usually write at night. Around 12 pm on.

I usually get the most during the weekends. My ritual begins with making the coffee, then cruising through teh intarwebz whilst waiting for it to brew, and when it's ready I bring a cup over and check teh intarwebz some more (might have missed something when I was getting coffee!), then drink about half of the first cup before going over to the writing table. After taking out my notebook and pens, taking care to fold over the ribbon bookmark on my Moleskine notebook in a way the cat can't get to it when he's sitting on it, I turn on the TV and flip to the music channels on cable. After arguing with myself that Comcast doesn't know what it's talking about ("classic" alternative? Ain't no such aminal...) and trying to decide on which music to listen to, I've gone through the first cup of coffee and need to get the second. Second cup on the ready and having settled on the music I want to listen to while writing, I finally get down to it.

My world, and welcome to it!

Typically weekdays from 7-3. But really, any time I'm at my desk I'm also fiddling with a WIP.

So, I never switch it off really.

No way! None! I'm quitting! *folds arms and pouts for five minutes* ... *suddenly thinks of a good plot twist for x character*

Gah. You try to quit, they draaaag you back. I should kill off all my characters. Then maybe I can be normal.

I've tried really hard to write in the wee hours of the early morning. eeeps! 5:30 am...instead I work out or clean house.

I'm an evening writer and mostly I write a heck of a lot on Saturday and Sundays. Like all day sessions.

ETA: I should mention that this morning I was at Beans and Brews writing fiction between 9 am and 11 am while they were showing my house. It was kinda weird but nice, in a squicky kinda of way. People stare A LOT when they see someone at work.

I write every morning from 4:30 to 5:30. And I also write for about an hour every night...time varies. These are my fiction writing slots. When I have freelance articles going (which is quite often) I write them in the evenings. no accoutrements except my laptop.

Glass -- OK, bottle -- or two -- of ale or dark beer, I hate beer you can read a newspaper through. Out on the patio with pen and yellow pad, in summer when it's hot, after sundown, until too dark to see. When pad is many pages covered, some time in morning, afternoon, or evening after 10 at the Mac for first edit into Word. It's hot out here in the desert.

:eek:

I am completely jealous. My "desk" is a folding table with a plastic top, just big enough to hold my laptop, a file rack, and my printer.

I have a desk with a desktop computer, but most of my serious writing gets done as I sit on the living room couch, feet propped on the coffee table, tapping away on my laptop. My only accessories are my headphones (I listen to music while I write, helps me filter out everything else) and a cup of coffee or tea.

I write fiction at night, school stuff during the day (except final essays and such, which eat into my evening writing), and blog posts during the day as well. No fixed schedule, per se, but it works, after a fashion.

It's an old Micron, 6 gigs of memory...LOL. I love it, I can't throw it away. :)

I love my new laptop, Cassie. It's just like Jason's, as a matter of fact. *strokes machine lovingly*

It's a beauty, and a real pleasure to use. I doubt I'll use my desktop anymore at all for writing....

I still use pen and paper. Once I have a really ROUGH draft done I pull out the laptop.
Then its whichever room the rest of the household is not in.
No office yet...

8AM to 12PM, then 1PM to 5PM, Mondays through Fridays. 12 to 1, I watch movies in my car (for inspiration, naturally) and Saturdays and Sundays I turn my brain off.

I'm a receptionist :D
