With regard to Ed's recent comments -- your mileage may vary.
I have successfully worked off-site for the last 20 years, have stayed VERY busy, have many satisfied clients, and rarely experience the type of problems Ed references. "Working off-site" still has a well-ingrained stigma in the tech writing world -- but based on my experience that stigma is undeserved.

Welcome to the 21st century people!!

Working offsite full time is very challenging in these areas:
- staying focused
- keeping communications open
- consistent feedback
- lack of personal contact.

Of course those are the same challenges in an office, but more difficult to
solve.

I have found that there is one key contact on most successful projects. It
can be difficult to develop that specific relationship when offsite.
