Paulo Coelho on writing II

I knew I had a book in my soul. Like any writer, I have many books in my soul. — Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho talking about writing using Aleph as an example.

You have a story in your soul. You have to choose a subject and share it with your readers. Aleph is many things, it is a crisis of faith, it is a journey, a journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway. You share that journey by taking your readers with you on the journey.

When a book is ready to be written, it is there in your head. It is waiting to be written.
