Paulo Coelho on how he balances Twitter and Writing

Documented@Davos: Paulo Coehlo, Author from Michelle Laird on Vimeo.


Brazilian Lyricist and Novelist Paulo Coelho was recently interviewed by The New York Times while in Davos. The interview is a real gem. Coelho discusses his thoughts on the future of the publishing industry (books aren't dead but the publishing industry is adrift); why he loves ebooks (they're lighter -- he's reading a 1,000 page tome on his kindle); Why he loves his kindle more than his iPad; and finally, how he writes, why he loves Twitter, his and how he manages his Twitter interactions with his 3 million followers while still being a productive writer.

It's a rich little vignette of an interview.
