This is an interesting approach to establishing a setting where you're *almost* forced to write.  I'm not going to lie, I've thought about buying one of those old-school ankle balls and chains and then somehow connecting them to a timer so that I can get my work done.  That, I think, is my ideal setting.  I can't really imagine writing somewhere where I'm not comfortable.  I get the feeling there's someone reading over my shoulder, which isn't always a bad thing unless you start trying to impress that person.
