Outside of writing from school, I do a significant amount. Like for example last night I did over four hours, starting and finishing a short story. But like today I did less than a half an hour I'd say. Also some days I try to write, but can't and spend two hours pretending to write... so it really depends with me.

If writing includes this site, the scribbles I do in my notebook while I'm surfing thid site, and stuff I do in school, and on Microsoft Word when the internet isn't working, then...I write quite often...

If we're not including school stuff, then I don't write a whole lot

But on a brighter note, if we're including homework then I write for many hours

Let's put it this way: if it's something you could post in the Literature section, then yes. So, no math homework or written quizzes.

I'm going to take this question at face value. I write 1 to 2 hours when I'm actually writing. When I'm in a slump, I'm reading or playing a game or doing something else for those hours. Right now I'm in a slump. Soon enough I'll be out of it. I've got about 5 projects I need to either start or finish :S.

I write 2 to 3 hours a day most of the time... and it's usually at night when I'm talking to friends. 1 hour of thinking another hour of typing another hour of attempting to edit.

I write alot...and supporting my vampire status I do most of my writing at night...my words flow better for some reason...anyway since its at night most of the time I lose track of how long I've been writing and I end up writing for 4 hours plus and go to bed at like 5 in the morning when I have to get up at seven....

It depends, during the school year I write less but during the summer I write more because I have a lot more free time.
