Don Walls looked a bit like Roald Dahl.

I read that Dahl wrote his books in the garden shed, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. He wrote with yellow pencils.

Whenever I read his books with my son, I think of him writing in his shed.

 

Virginia Woolf famously said that to write, a woman needs a room of her own.

She both is and is not talking about an actual room.
