It Was All A Dream

Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions. A common motif in stories, movies, and music, is to bring in a dream as foreshadowing for what will happen later.

Sometimes, it even drives the drama within the plot. This week we hear two stories in which dreams foreshadow and determine the main characters’ fate.

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.
