Writing Update: September 2019

Writing Update: September 2019

Seeing as we’re more than half of the way through the year I wanted to give an update on what to expect over the last few months of the year and to give a full accounting of what I’ve been working on.

On the work side of things I’ve completed my 16th month with Olive + Goose Consulting focused primarily on working with Microsoft Services. As part of that work we’ve published a series of seven eBooks on Cybersecurity and Identity which I’m excited to have contributed to. I’ve also done quite a bit of non-work writing: perhaps the most fun part has been kicking off a fiction writing group with a few friends and writing 20,000 words (and counting) on a sci-fi/fantasy project. I’m incredibly excited to see the results of everyone’s work and I’m confident that a couple members of our little group are going to end up with their novel’s published by someone or other.

I’ve also been doing quite a bit of writing on technology, urbanism, and the green economy. I’ve contributed to The Urbanist, Planetizen (where I’ve become a Contributor and plan to continue writing), Coin Law, Coin Review, Olive + Goose’s Blog “Olive Press” and more. You can see a full list of my published work so far this year at the end of this post and you can find more information and future writing here on my blog or over at my facebook page.

As to what else I’ve got planned, I’ve currently got one piece we’re shopping for publication and a couple more in the pipeline with Planetizen. If you’ve got recommendations or tips for potential articles, shoot me a message or feel free to leave a comment.

Thanks for your support - and keep reading!
