I'm fortunate enough to be location-independent, so as a roving copywriter, copy editor, and virtual assistant, I work from almost anywhere. In the past two years I have typed, Skyped, and Zoomed my way from Africa, to Southeast Asia, back to Africa, and to Europe, the UK, Canada, and Mexico. Wherever I am, that's my office of the day.
And somehow there's often a cat.
