Writing of The Alchemist: How a Change of Place Changes You

Paulo Coelho did not write “The Alchemist,” his travels did.

In this episode I talk about the events that transpired to create this massive phenomenon of a book. We mine interviews Mr. Coelho has given and discover the environmental factors that affect the caliber of work an artist can produce. Whether you like it or not, your setting can work FOR you, or AGAINST You. Choose wisely.
