I find consistency is key. An hour on Sunday from 8 to 9pm, every Wednesday from 6am to 8am, whatever fits one's lifestyle.

Or the extreme... I spent almost all spare time in the past three months exclusively on writing a book about cloud-native web development with source code for each chapter. Looking back, the current lockdown situation made this possible, otherwise I highly encourage not to have such a lifestyle and take lots of breaks. When I got stuck, I would get up, spend some time doing something else and get back to writing. Also, make sure you sleep enough, always :)!
