Something happens when you move abroad—you become forever international.
Writer Abroad thought she’d move back to Chicago, get a job at a Chicago agency or publication, and that would be that.
Instead, she maintains her internationally-minded career from the comfort of her own home.
|Working with the world…from home.|
In a single day she can be on a phone call with someone in Berlin, be messaging someone in Zurich, and be discussing Swiss culture with a German journalist who is based in New York City. In fact, these days, almost 90% of Writer Abroad's work comes from places more than 500 miles away.
It’s strange, but it’s also wonderful. Wonderful that it’s possible to go home again but still work with the world on your own terms—because that was one of the things that made Writer Abroad nervous about going home again: the smallness of home.
But she’s learned that once you go out into the big, wide world you’re always a part of it, even at “home.”
Anyone else have this experience too?
