I have not.

To me, if a nonfiction work is about history, it's just that author's interpretation of how that historical event played out. Unless they were actually there, in which case it's autobiographical.

If it's not about history, it's an opinion piece. I do write my opinions pretty explicitly in the Daen's Musings section, and I'm nowhere near interesting enough to write a compelling autobiography, so there's that.

Don't get me wrong: there are plenty of truly astoundingly good authors who write all sorts of nonfiction stuff. I'm just not one of them.
