Writing / Editing
I got words, big words. Unlike some, I know what they mean. I had an inspiring HSC English teacher who taught me much about using the English language effectively. For a long time, I was a boorish pedant with others’ writing. I now realize that language is perpetually in flux and must thus accept “continuous desecration of the Queen’s English as I was taught!”
- I write regular magazine articles on building, AV and related topics.
- I produce technical documentation for AV integrators.
- I provide editing and proofreading services for any and all documents.
- I also offer document markup, formatting and conversion in a variety of formats.
Attention to detail and context are my strong points.
Magazine Articles – CX
I spent the best part of 20 years working with black boxes. Not long after I started working as a rock-and-roll roadie, Connections magazine was born. They have survived the ages and are now (mainly) online as CX Magazine
Since late 2018 (Issue 141 pictured), I have written regularly for CX. Topics include venue profiles, gear reviews, how-tos, history lessons, memory lane fun, and now a few op-eds. It’s been a fun journey and my writing has matured alongside.
I even have my own monthly column, called ‘Backstage’.
Magazine Articles – Other
Since writing the first few articles for CX mag, I have branched out into penning for other AV publications and outlets. I write regularly on a variety of topics for Connected & AV Technology magazines. I also do plenty of in house Case Studies (venue / gear profiles) and general content creation for AV companies.
I am chugging along with regular commissions and the researching, interviewing and writing process is fun.
Magazine Articles – TOB
I wrote a lot of articles for The Owner Builder magazine. Sadly, it is no longer. After 40 years, she passed on. Times change.
As a long time reader, it contributed to me owner building. That led to me writing about what we did and how, and now I write for a living.
I will miss exploring the journeys among its pages but I understand that all things have a life span.
Vale TOB & thank you Lynda.
