There's not a lot of writing out there that's 100% off site. What I do see
is editors, proofreaders, and indexers working entirely at home. Actually
*finding* those gigs is another story, and it takes time to build up a
clientele such that you can live on that income. There is a Freelance
listserv that seems to be made up entirely of writers/indexers/proofreaders,
etc. who might be able to advise you better. You might look for Copywr-L
(if that's right) and Index-L, too.
