I plot all of my comic books, and have just begun writing some of them myself. The artwork takes the lonfest amount of time, for me. Maybe it's because it's all plotted out in advance, but (again, to me) it seems that the writing of the actual dialog goes fairly quick.

I did a little writing for Rolling Stone a while back and self-published a novel last year.
You don't need a lot of time to write, but what you do need is a set schedule. I used to do 1 1/2-2 hours every morning before work, but after my son was born, it's down to 30-45 minutes. And I think I'm actually more productive now because of the condensed schedule. But do set up a schedule and stick to it. Mine is the same time, five days a week. If I have a work holiday, then I have a writing holiday, too. That way there's no guilt or confusion about whether I should be writing on a certain day or not. Also, I don't write on weekends for the same reason.
And it's never too late to start writing.
You've got the right idea about hashing out the story before you write. Work that outline, start a master document that includes the outline, character sketches, timelines, scenery, anything that needs a quick reference. Also, find a couple writers with a good, solid voice and read them like crazy, both before and during the writing process. Gets you in a good rhythm.

I've been published 3 times, 2 times under a publisher and 1 was a self-published endeavor. Great to see your work in print, but any mistake sticks out like a sore thumb. It almost ruins it for you. Lol.

This is really good advice. As an addendum, also try and make it time where there are no more outside influences. Whenever I'm on deadline I just block out the week and start writing at 10pm and finish at 6am. No phone calls to worry about, usually no tv that's good to watch to distact, and everyone in the house is asleep.
