Famously, Roald Dahl wrote many of his best-known children's stories, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda, in a Writing Hut in his garden. But what other rituals did he rely on during the writing process? If you're looking for creative writing inspiration, follow the links below for tips from various authors and illustrators - as well as Roald Dahl himself.
Stories are good for you
Roald Dahl said, "If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."
We believe in doing good things.
Ten percent of The Roald Dahl Story Company Limited’s (company number 11099347) operating profit goes to charity. This all means we give lots of money to good causes.
