Where I write by Joanne Boden

This week I’m joined by Choc Lit author Joanne Boden as she celebrates the publication of A Vacancy for a Village Vet and tells readers about where she writes. Over to Joanne …

Hello Morton and thank you so much for inviting me back on your blog to celebrate the publication of A Vacancy for a Village Vet, my second novel with Choc Lit. It’s lovely to be back!

I don’t have a writing room, or even a writing corner. I don’t have a writing shed. We have a shed but it’s full of garden tools and pots and other bits and pieces. 

I don’t have a designated writing spot at home, but luckily for me I prefer to write in different places dotted about the house, depending mainly on the time of year, who is at home and what mood I am in. As long as I have my laptop and notebooks, all is good…

The Kitchen Island

My favourite place to write during the daytime is at the kitchen island. We are very lucky as the kitchen is nice and bright. So I usually perch on the stool at the kitchen island and set myself for a few hours of writing. There are plants on the island and Bozo the junk model monster who keeps me company. It’s also the perfect place as the coffee machine is right behind me. I usually play music while I write and at the moment I have a country music playlist on the go. I always have my notebook within easy reach, either to look up some scribbles I’ve made or if I need to make a note of an idea. 

The Dining Table

I’ll sometimes write at the dining table, just for a change of scenery. Again this room is nice and bright and I can look out into the garden. Recently I’ve been able to see the baby starlings on the feeders. 

The Sofa 

If I write during the evening then I usually curl up with a blanket over my lap on the sofa with my laptop. I tend to go over what I’ve written that day. I also sometimes draft out the scene for the next day, or jot down other ideas or changes that need to be made. I am usually sitting next to my youngest son’s toy dog, Sammy , and toy cat, Sven.

About A Vacancy for a Village Vet

From big city high-flyer to little village vet …

Hannah and Daniel were teenage sweethearts, but then Daniel left their sleepy village of Middlefern and his grandfather’s veterinary practice behind for the bright lights of London.

Now, fifteen years later, the prodigal grandson has returned to temporarily take over the village practice with a veterinary qualification and his dog, Sammy, in tow. Daniel is ready for rabbits with tummy aches, guinea pigs who’ve lost their squeak, plenty of cow complaints and a whole lot of memories – both good and bad. But is he ready to see Hannah again?

Of course, a high-flying city vet like Daniel was never planning to stay in Middlefern for good – especially given his history with the place. But could another, even more important, vacancy convince him to change his mind?
