If you start off to fast, meaning, every day for hours on end, you can run the risk of burning out and taking another long hiatus from your creative endeavors.
I recommend just starting with a few days a week for a few hours at a time to start with and then work your way up to more and more.
At the end of each month check to see how you did with the pace you laid out.
If you did well add more time.
If you did bad in hitting your set days and times of creating/producing then take time away if need be.
