Like really really late at night. I feel like it helps me unwind just before I go to bed. I can get a lot done because there are less distractions and I'm really focused on finishing my alloted words that I want to do for that day. Also, I can't put it off any longer because it is the end of the day.
Usually at night. I can write during the day, but it typically ends up horrible and I edit the crap out of it as soon as the sun goes down. I also seem to get better the more tired I get for some reason. A lot of my best pieces were written just before I fell asleep. Well, this is true at least for the actual writing part.
As for getting ideas, they can come at any time...usually at the worst times when I have nowhere to write them down.

My brain decides to have ideas whenever it's most inconvenient for me .
However, I used to be on a pretty consistent schedule where I'd come home from work, unwind for an hour (usually by watching a show on Netflix), then write for an hour or two. Then I'd take another break--maybe get a quick dinner with friends, then do homework. Then, if I feel really inspired, jam a few more paragraphs in before I go to bed.
But now my work/uni schedule's all wonky and I've just been goofing off, not really working on a particular project, so lately it's been like, "scribble something for half an hour and then Tumblr all the time."
I...yeah, I'm not a good writing role model for anyone.
