Inquiry, the 22nd of September (Equinox):

Today the daylight hours will equal the night (Equi=equal; Nox=night). How much time per week do you spend on your mini/TTRPG hobby? Is hobbying usually done at night or during the day?

I prefer during the day; maybe 4-6 hours a week? In a dry spell now, can't seem to get motivated so painting's been minimal.

I spend as much time on The Craft as energy & enthusiasm allow. Most of the time is after sunrise and before 6 PM, occasionally later, most every day.

Currently not very much at all. I kind of want to, but I know I'm going to need to pack it all up soon to move, and that's putting a damper on my enthusiasm.

I work during the day, so hobby time is in the evenings or on weekends.

Not as much as I would like to...  I get a few hours in the evening 2-4 nights a week.  Depends on kids' schedules, gaming (Friday and Sunday nights), so hobbying (at least the non-playing portion) has to fit in around other things.  3d printing has added early morning checks of prints and sometimes a little post-print processing, but that's pretty rare.

On average, over the past year, it's been below an hour a week. Only recently (with ReaperCon and the Chaos Toad Sorcerer contest among things) has my painting picked up to an average of maybe 10 hours per week.

 

It's a mix between day and night. I prefer daytime for the natural lighting as my living room has poor indoor illumination. And I like painting in the evening, because the day is done and no other errands or chores will be on my mind.

 

P.S. I haven't done any TTRPGs in over a year.

Of late, practically no time on minis.  I'm in a slump as far as painting goes.

 

TTRPG is significantly higher.

 

Wed: 4 hour in person Starfinder game after work (5pm-9pm)

Sat: 4-5 hour 0930-13/1400) 5E game with my High School group

Sunday: 2 hour 1930-2130 Rules Cyclopedia game run by @Crowley with occasional extra games on Thursdays

 

And I'm in an office with several other gamers so we talk DnD on a daily basis, discussing rules or adventure ideas during down time.  So 10-15 hours a week TTRPG.

The fixed part is at night 4 hrs a week when our group gets together.  The mini part varies and is mostly done during the day.

I don't get an average amount of time during the week to hobby. If I set up to paint, I usually end up getting called for by the parents to help do something around the house (it's a big house to take care of, with three dogs that need walking, and with being unemployed, I really have no excuse to not help). So painting usually happens at night, if it happens. I can usually get more cleanup/assembly done during the day, as long as it's before 4pm (the sunlight in the room I use for assembly loses natural light around then). I prefer natural light for cleaning mold lines, helps me see them better.

 

I maybe get about 5 hours a week for hobby time. Sometimes more, but it's never consistent.

I *try* to spend at least 3-4 hours hobbying at night during the week (added up across all 5 week days), but often fall short. I usually get in another 2-3 daylight hours on the weekends.

 

In my ideal world, I would spend at least 8 hours a week, but that is mostly a fantasy.

 

(I do not expect to do anything special to celebrate the equinox, but I usually am at least aware of it.)

It varies a lot. This year I've been struggling to find my hobby mojo. Summer is usually a slow time because of lack of energy after work but this summer all my spare time was taken up by video games and the internet. Have managed a couple hours of painting the last week. Ideally  I get an hour or so a night. Generally I paint later in the evenings but when I'm really into something I'll sit down every chance I get.

Hobbying is done at night simply because life is done at night ::P:

 

Time spent varies. Sometimes it's lots, sometimes it's none. Up to 18 hours a week, methinks, especially when I have a thing I want Done.

Depends on the season. I prefer to paint by daylight, but that doesn't always happen.

Right now, a couple hours a week, maybe. I've downshifted across the board considerably while I'm rehabbing my shoulder.

I am usually around 6-10 hours/wk for art, probably the same or close to it for music (playing bass using Rocksmith as a backing band). I've learned I need to develop an exercise routine to support those hobbies!

I get zero-8 hours a day. Lately it's been ~4-8 hours over the weekend, with half to an hour on days during the week.  I try to do at least One Thing every day, even if it is only zapping out a shot of dullcote or primer in the garage on my way to get dinner out of the freezer.  If we're going to count watching paint videos or making maps in preparation for the weekend game,  then I can add several more hours during the week.  My rpg group runs ~2x a month for ~4 hours.

10 to 15 hours a week on average.  In summer it is more like 4-8 hours and winter is more like 12 to 20 hours.  During a Bones KS ramp up it can approach 20 to 30 hours.
