Why don’t you write a book about your life?


With each passing day Okay, you’re right! is developing into something tangible.  I am excited to give you a sneak peek and share another fragment from the book.

After my first meeting with Mark, the same question kept repeating over and over in my mind: Why doesn’t he write a book about his life?


When I got the courage to ask him, he replied without hesitation, as if this was a question strangers asked him, regularly.

“I’m not a writer. I am a storyteller. Whenever I tell people things; about life, philosophy, society, and culture; I am met with a healthy amount of doubt, disbelief, and antagonism. It’s as if they think I am spouting theories I just invented or hiding some underlying plot.”


“When I live by example, guided by the philosophies and principles I embrace, people seem to accept the truth of my actions and understand my reasons without a word spoken. They SEE reality rather than HEAR rationalization. So how could I write my book? Nobody would believe me.”

About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I am a writer and a freelance journalist based in Florence, Italy. Ever since I can remember I loved stories and everything about them, from the storyteller who told them, to the paper they were written on. Because of that, I love listening to people’s stories and sometimes experience them in writing as my own.
