I hate to disagree on this but I require all my writers to submit detailed
time/project spreadsheets every week. I have to be able to see what/how they
spend their time. I can't estimate them on future projects if I don't know
how they spend their time/what their strengths and weakness are.

Even very senior writers must do this. It is part of my contract that they
may not get paid if they don't do this.
