How and where do writers write? With coffee and cacophony or in austere silence? In warm kitchens or in lonely attics? Joanna Trollop follows the muse of successful novelists.

I've got the study I've always longed for. It looks out onto a big sloping lawn, and as soon as I go into it in the morning, it just takes me in. I like to start the day slowly, giving external attention to breakfast but some internal attention to the writing day ahead. I'm at my desk by ten. I like to be alone then and I like silence. I hate winter. My study has to be at least 70 degrees or I can't concentrate. I write in longhand with Berol Mirado pencils on recycled paper. I'm aware of the need to be fit and well so I eat conscientiously at lunchtime. I stop at 5.30, do exactly 35 minutes of yoga, put on some Mozart or Haydn, and play around with food, which is a wonderful way of engaging other senses than the ones I use all day.


One of the joys of being a writer is that you don't have to have a routine, but when I've got a book on the boil I really don't do anything else. My brain only works until lunchtime and food is vital to keep me going: digestive biscuits are a must and I do confess to the odd chocolate crisis. I work until I'm really hungry and then I take the dog out to thrash out any problems. After lunch, I'll read - mostly novels by dead authors so as not to get too demoralized. If it's warm, I work in a summerhouse I built, which has a view of the garden. If it's very cold, I shut myself into the loft. I have to confess I work better there. It's where the word processor lives, although I like to work with pencil and exercise book first, to tease ideas out. The evenings are for the box. I love it. I video old films. That's my treat.
