Where am I, and why am I there?

Sometimes when you write, you can get into a creative flow where you lose yourself in your work and lose track of time and the outside world. That happens to me from time to time. And I write science fiction.

Once, I finished writing and discovered that the flow had taken me to the point where I had lost track of what planet I was on. So I looked out the window, took note of several clues, and realized that I was on Earth. And I was there because I had always been there and would always be there.

But I hadn't volunteered to be there.

*Sigh.*

Yes, but sometimes only bodily.

Do you write in order to travel? It seems to be a vehicle, anyway. :)

It's the next best thing to a spaceship. And more affordable.
