I prefer to follow both of Ueland's rules. I do actually enjoy writing. My first book is in the editing stage and while that hurts (cutting pains) I am learning much with every step I take. Glad to have a simple course like this to help keep me motivated though.

Since I don't work - for now - I don't feel the need to SQUEEZE writing in my life. Yes, I'm busy, with 2 children. And yes, I'm also trying to find MORE time to write. I stay up late (but I'm trying to change that from staying up to 1 or 2 AM, to only 10 or 11 PM, so that I can get up at 6 or 6:30, too). I joined a writing group, but it's online, so the hours don't matter there. And the last one? Well, I guess I open up my manuscripts only AFTER I do all my reading, blogging, and studying, and networking. THEN if I feel like it, or still have the time, I'll work on one of my own. I DO, however, at least revise something once a month (for my critique group). But it should really be more often than that. Writing isn't something I do on the side. The rest of my life is on the side. However, I think my ACTUAL writing does get pushed to the side daily as I do "other" aspects that relate to my writing career. I need balance. And focus.
