There are lots of reasons why we might want to track a
writer's time, especially time per project, from billing to
just trying to chart a pattern that enables more accurate
predictions of time and resources required for projects.
The issue is whether the time accounted for is used to
determine your pay.

If we asked everybody on this list whether or not they are _required_ to
account for their time, on an hourly or sub-hourly basis, which group
would likely predominate? I doubt that more than a fistful of writers
actually punch a clock, but I'd be surprised if most of us didn't have
to keep a log of some sort.
