Small, vivid update

Hello long-lost readers, if any are still out there.

Vivid has been dormant for a while, but like the vaquita in the image, it is not extinct just yet, and neither am I.

Most of my writing endeavours of late have been directed into the beginnings of a draft of a non-fiction book. Assuming it gets written, but not otherwise published, this is where it will be serialised.

In the meantime I have an idea or two brewing for a new essay here, and ahead of that a couple of short, unrelated posts ready to publish right now, landing shortly.

One of these is itself a book review — the first and possibly the last on this blog (count it as a testament to the book in question that I felt inclined to break with tradition). Please do have a look, spread the word, perhaps even buy the book. It’s an eye-opener.

The other post is a bit of satirical fun, inspired by some shenanigans on social media that I witnessed over the last year or two, but itself entirely fictional: all resemblances coincidental, etc., etc.

Before uploading those I wanted to say something about privacy and data protection, given the GDPR legislation that came into force since I last posted here.

Luckily this will be short and sweet: I don’t keep, store, access or possess in any way anyone’s personal information.

  1. Welcome back !
    I’ve always wondered why we use the term “non-fiction” to describe something that real … is it because in fact, the facts have become so unbelievable that we have to state very clearly “not made up” ?
