I write a lot less now that I use my mother's computer. Before we had one just for the kids in our family and I had my own user to store things privately and go on the comp excessively to write. Now I only write for school. And this writing support group I go to. (Young Writers Group)

I can't exactly say cause it really depends on my mood, but i'll say i have spent over 4 hours writing...

I put 30-60 minutes; it really varies. Some days I'll write for five/ten minutes and somedays for five hours. Does editing count?
But I make sure to do at least one poem a day.

This.

I cannot give a definite answer really. However, all I can say is that I try to make a poem per day and/or start a short story.

An hour or two per day, I'd say; and maybe more on weekends. However, if I'm in a bad mood, I could hardly jot a single word down, so I'd say it varies .

3 hours? Don't forget to eat sometimes, okay?

I don't write as often as I used to back in the day, but I usually try and squeeze in ten hours a week. It could be random ideas to see where they go, or something serious.

I post twelve articles a month to my blog, about a dozen others on other sites, and spend any waking moment I can on one of my ever elusive stories.
