Remote Work: Perfect for Writer Types

Writer Abroad has been working 100% remotely for 1.5 years now. And it’s mostly wonderful. In fact, it can be downright amazing to spend a day working on global projects with people from several countries without ever leaving your home office.

Now that Writer Abroad has her very officially incorporated company, Cross Border Content Inc., she stays local but works global. (And for those who are wondering: Writer Abroad had to legally put the “Inc.” in her company name but still doesn’t really like its corporate-ness.)

In any case, for those writer-types interested in remote work, Writer Abroad just finished a wonderful book called Remote: Office Not Required by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson. It makes two great points: 1) Great remote workers are simply great workers. And 2) great remote workers must be good writers.

According to the authors, remote work “gives back the edge to quiet-but-productive workers who often lose out in a traditional office environment. In a remote setup, you don’t need to constantly boast about the quality of your stuff…if you’re all talk and no walk, it’s painfully clear for all to see.”

This is especially important for writers working in countries where extroversion is the preferred personality type. Where go-getting and teamwork is the mantra—even for those writing copy. (I'm talking about you, America.)

Which brings Writer Abroad to her latest essay, which ran on last month: The unapologetic introvert—why I had to leave the U.S. to stop pretending to be an extrovert. 

Yes, it was quiet, introverted Switzerland that taught Writer Abroad there was nothing wrong with her personality. So now she celebrates her introverted-ness daily—even in America—by working remotely with the world.

    1. Outstanding post on Remote Work. Writing is an industry that quickly comes to mind when talking about working from home. I am also personal statement writer at Personal Statement Folks. I really like your post. I would like to share this post with our expert team of Personal statement writers at Personal Statement Folks. We, the Personal Statement Folks, know how important is your past education and experience, skills and outside reading about the subject you are applying for; thus we make it a priority to portray your reasons to choose the subject and the benefits you receive from being selected in the college in a clear and precise format. There are sufficiently of reasons not to become a writer, but an interest in living abroad is not one of them.

    2. Beautiful post and Chantal you are genius writer. A writer’s style is an image of his or her unique voice, personality, and way of upcoming the readers and audience. Expository writing's main purpose is to explain. Before I started my career as a CV Maker at -, I was also an academic writer. So I know subject-oriented writing style is focus on given topic or subject without declaring their personal attitudes. Thanks for sharing such a great post.

    These types are very useful and I think it's great to be a writer and I want to try writing too. But maybe later because now I'm a little bit busy and I ask to help me with this task. But I want to note that it's very cozy and you have more free time.
