Well, first: Welcome to the writing room, Irena!
For me the best time to write is when I'm alone. For me it doesn't matter what time of day, really, as long as I can shut out the world and throw myself into my story. That's when I'm happy.
See, I like to talk to myself when I'm writing and for me that is majorly embarassing to do in front of my family! Not to mention all the crazy looks I get when I do this. So, I need to be alone and it can be quiet except for some music.
...Yeah, if you ever sneak up on me while I'm writing, you'll probably hear me carrying on a conversation all by myself. There might be some screams, yelling matches, etc. You know?

I find that the best time to write is all day long. I highly suggest carrying a notebook with you at all times, whether it be a small hand held or a full sized notebook. This way you can jot down any idea that pops into your head during the day. I personally write and re-write stories all day in my head and I just jot down things that I want to remember to put into my stories. I compile them whenever I have free time which can be during class, before bead or on a break at work. Whenever I feel the urge to write I do.

Apparently at two in the morning, because that's really the only time I think of something. I swear, I haven't slept a full night since I started writing. (Not to mention my dreams about my characters. I'm so obsessed.)
I also find myself writing when I'm not supposed to. I.e. During classes such as: history math, or anything that doesn't have to do with writing whatsoever.

I have not found a particular time when it is best for me to write. My most productive writing is done when I am all alone, and have been able to close out the rest of the world and immerse myself in the characters and story-line. But, the time for my most "inspired" ideas and writing is very random. Sometimes it is during work, sometimes it is while I am on the road, and sometimes it is at 2:00 am. The key for me is to be able to get the idea on to paper as quickly as possible.

I typically write the most early in the morning when I first wake up and late at night when I am about to go to sleep.
I also carry a small notebook with me in my back pocket everywhere I go. Sometimes I get the best inspiration when I am driving and jamming out to some loud music...usually Muse or Nine Inch Nails. Sometimes I will even jot down ideas while stopped at stop light or stuck in traffic...or if I am actively driving I'll write down the idea on my hand so I won't forget it lol.
Music helps alot though...really helps the creative juices get flowing.
