Reply to "when"

Can't (4) mean when I start to writ it or we I'm going to write it not the whole time that I'm writing since "when" refers to a specific time not a duration?

Yes, Tara, it can mean that. But it doesn't have to mean that. There is no rule that "when" can't refer to something durative when the action in its clause is durative.
