And the answer is:

A. Writing shack

Many of Dahl's most beloved children's stories were written in a small shack in his garden.

Roald Dahl believed in self-discipline, stamina, a great sense of humor and hard work;  keeping himself isolated helped him focus. 

By the way, every one of the answers to the trivia question is a practice followed by an author.
Acting out the dialogue: Aaron Sorkin (West Wing)
Hang upside down: Dan Brown (The DaVinci Code)
Sleep with manuscript: Joan Didion (essayist, novelist)
