Things I Have In Common With Robert Louis Stevenson


*Things I Have In Common With Robert Louis Stevenson*
1. We both like to write
2. We both like pirates
3. Neither of us ever had any children
4. Same birthday as my father

(By the way, this is today’s Google Doodle, to honor the 160th birthday
of Robert Louis Stevenson. My father would have been a bit younger than
that, 78 to be precise.)

I see also that Wikipedia lists essays amongst Stevenson’s works, and
since I have recently become interested in studying and perhaps
producing the various forms of creative non-fiction, I guess I’m going
to look him up!
