Daily Life
A day in the life of Brian Tanner
y day begins at seven, when my wife Judy
brings me a cup of tea in bed.
What a luxury! I sit there and think about
everything I have to do in the coming day.
Our two children get up and get ready for school.
I hear the bathroom door slamming and the sound
of the shower. I keep out of the way. They have
to go out, but I work at home, so they always
have to use the bathroom first.
I go downstairs in my pyjamas, and we all have
breakfast together in the kitchen at about eight.
We have juice, coffee, toast, sometimes even
bacon and eggs. We all like a big breakfast.
Judy takes the children to school and goes to the
university, where she teaches history of art.
The house seems very empty and quiet without
them. I always start work at nine oclock exactly.
Writing is such a solitary job, you must have a
regular routine! First of all, I usually look at what
I typed the day before. I sometimes change it all.
I dont write quickly or easily.
I think about every word, and rewrite each
sentence at least four times. At 11 I stop

for coffee and take the dog out for a walk.


We live in a village, and there is lovely
countryside to walk in, especially in spring
or autumn. Then I write for another two
or three hours. I never have lunch. I need to
get on with my work. I try to write
about a thousand words a day. At half
past three I collect the children from
school and have a snack with them.
I love chatting to them about their
day! Then they do their
homework and watch TV. I often
sit and watch with them for a
bit, until Judy comes home and
makes the dinner. Shes the
cook in our house!
I usually put the children to
bed and read them a story.
Most days were all in bed and
asleep by eleven but on Fridays
we often go to bed later. My last
thought is usually, I must write
more tomorrow!

We are following the fortunes
of seven families for a year.
This week: The Stokes family from Brighton.

he Stokes family are


having a lot of
problems with jobs and
housing this year.
Carrie is working as an
assistant in a sandwich
bar, but it is only a
temporary job and the
wages are low. She is
hoping to find
something better soon.
Her fianc, Adam, is still
unemployed, and he is finding
it difficult to get a job at all.
They are also looking for a new
flat. Theyve looked at a lot,
but they havent found one yet.
At the moment they are living
with Adams mother, Liz, in
her two-bedroom flat. The
problem is, theres no room for
Carries young son, Luke.

Therefore he is staying with


his father, Carries ex-husband.
Carrie hopes this is only for a
month or two. She misses Luke
terribly and wants to look after
him herself. The situation is
hard for Carrie and Adam, but
they visit Luke almost every
day, and take him to the
playground at weekends.
Adams older sister, Zandra,

is leaving her mums


home for the first time
next week, to share a
flat with two other
young women. Zandra
works for a mobile
phone company, and
she earns a good salary.
She works long hours,
but she says she loves
her job. At the moment
she is saving hard to buy
things for her new home. She
sometimes helps her brother
and lends him money, but she
is also very critical of him.
Why cant he get a job? she
says. Is he really trying? She
calls him the black sheep of
our family and the brother
and sister often have
arguments.

My ROOM

ou may find it strange that my desk has got a


garden gnome on it. My son gave it to me. Ive got
three sons 13-year-old twins and an eight year old
and almost all the objects that there are on my shelves
are connected with them: they are of no great financial
value but they remind me in some way of my boys.
The photographs are also mainly of my kids. And
above the desk there are some other pictures. I think
every writer needs pictur es in their room for
inspiration.
There are thousands of CDs in my room because I
always listen to music when Im writing. Ive done it
since I was a teenager, when I first started writing in
my bedroom in Bromley. Silence makes me feel rather
uncomfortable, nervous.
The wallpaper was in the house when I got here, Ive
kept it, and indeed fought to keep it, because it is like
being in an Indian restaurant, and I always wanted to
spend all of my life in an Indian restaurant.
At the bottom of the wall theres a picture of a girl
sitting down. This is a drawing of my mother, done by
a friend of hers in 1943. Next to that, on the right,
theres a portrait of my father. My mother drew it in
1954, the year I was born. Above that theres my Oscar
nomination for My Beautiful Laundrette.
I dont read very much. I dont have time, but I
certainly accumulate books and the room has got piles
of them everywhere. I hate throwing away books.

Reading

I usually work in the morning, I try to start around


seven and work until around midday and then I do
other things. Ive got several typewriters but you cant
get the ribbons these days. Computers are wonderful
for writers, but they do encourage books that are too
long. I write by hand first and then type it up. Writing
with a founta in pen is a real pleasu re and many
writers feel very strongly about their pens youd be
surprised at how some of the toughest guys cant wait
to tell you about their new Mont Blanc.
