How much writing and editing is enough?


The topic of how much editing and re-writing, how many words to a good novel is enough and sticking to a solid writing schedule are topics that haunt me into practical not-writing at all paralysis.

I listen to Youtube by authors about writing however, I must remember that we are all different and sometimes their advice is not possible for me to follow. 
I posted on my author Facebook page: A writer I know personally said, "I write every day in order to be a good novelist." Asked, "how is it that nothing ever interrupts your writing schedule?" His wife was sitting next to him as we spoke. Looking at her he said, "no matter what, even if we have company, I go into my office and write form 6-9 pm." Well.... maybe if I had a wife.... not putting anyone down but a lot of times things come up that I have to take care off and how about when we travel or are with family?

Then I came to this article that had flagged "must read" Discussion in 'Writing Discussions' and got some more feedback. The comments are worth reading but my question is: The thing is how much, when and where do you write?
