Yes, Yes, oh yes!
Would love to telecommute. Visit the office a couple of times a
week to catch up on the latest.
Lot of employers have yet to acknowledge that tech writers are mature
enough to handle this. My last assignment required that I show every day
even though I could have handled most of the work from home. In fact my
equipment at home is superior to that I had to work with at WORK!
I'm not complaining about the $35/hour, but wasting time in unproductive
drive time was just that...a phenom waste of time and quite a bit of strees.
