If you could have any author – living or dead – write your biography, who would you choose? In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ghostwriter.”
First of all this prompt scorns my very little knowledge of arts and literature and the famous or notorious people who are the building blocks of this field. Yeah, I’ve read books but not enough for me to learn specific literary style or voice. But this post is asking for any author to write my biography. Since I am in the field of numbers I would pick Luca Pacioli, the father of accounting.
He is a mathematician and famous for his books on “Summa de Arithmetica”, geometry, proportion et proportionality. By this background alone I am sure that my life story will be given justice, truth and fairness. Justice because mathematicians are accurate to the last number after the decimal point. No leaves will be left unturned because as a specialist in geometry, every angle is measured, investigated and exposed. My story will be told in exact even or odd numbers.
As the first to describe the double entry accounting, I bet my life story wouldn’t miss the laws of karma and its effect, good and bad, whatever you give, you get something in return.
