Writer In Florence Ela Vasilescu

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’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
