First off, this Daily Prompt has already been done before and here is my answer.
To play along, besides what I wrote months ago, I’d pick a friend who goes by the initials RM. RM is a teacher abroad. Besides being a wonderful poet, avid reader, and a bit of a historian, he’s also a mountain climber, photographer, and great family man.
He’s more into historical figures than fictional ones, so he reads a lot of biographies and autobiographies or accounts of past events. And how he writes is how he likes his history.
