I'd like to say that I have a routine but really, I don't. During the last month of revisions, I have been writing until 4-5am and then crashing until noon, waking up and starting at 3pm. That seemed to work for me. I think I tend to be more of a night-time writer. I know I'm definitely not a morning one. lol.
Usually, I wake up, take a few hours to fully become conscious (I don't drink coffee so it can be a slow process). I'll watch some tv, browse the net, whatever. If I have to crit, what I was finding was that I can crit first up to 3pm, and then at this point, force myself to move on to my own stuff. That said, I'm currently not working so this doesn't always work. When I was working, I'd write from 8:30-9am and then 7-11pm.
The point of writing is to do it. If I get a chance or am up to it before 3pm, I do it. I try to take advantage of my time however I can.
