I would be interested in hearing from those tech writers who work out of
their home. How do you find it?
---------------------

Easy. It's the only brown house on the block.

I work at home about 80% of the time and have done so for about a year
now. I love it. As for getting jobs, I work through a job shop and am
currently on a long-term contract.

Advantages: 1) I get to work my own hours, which amounts to about 8
hours spread between noon and midnight. 2) I get to spend a lot of time
with my wife and kids -- my wife doesn't work outside the home, and we
homeschool. 3) I have a window that opens.

Disadvantages: 1) My kids continually forget that I'm "at work" and so
they often interrupt. 2) It's easier to not work.
