If you're at a loose end, a fixed writing time can help add some structure and rhythm to your days. I suggest half an hour "morning pages" (rapid-writing mind-dump) before or after breakfast, plus a regular writing slot elsewhere in the day, either at your most alert time (eg 11am, for me) or at a "slump" time where you might otherwise feel aimless (eg 4pm, for me). This writing slot might be 10 minutes, half an hour, or an hour, up to you. (I suggest you decide in advance, though, for that day / that week.)
