It’s a funny phrase, “writing yourself into a corner”.  It comes from the act of painting a floor, which is now pretty much antiquated in my part of the United States.  There’s an old Archie comic short–I cannot find it despite a quick Google image search–where Jughead and one of his friends are painting the school’s floor, and the principal tells them to make sure they don’t paint themselves into a corner.  Jughead thinks he’s being smart by painting himself next to a door, until he opens it and realizes that his buddy’s painted both of them in!

There was a point to this post, but I forgot what it was.  However, I’m going to post it anyway, because that way I can say that I’ve written something recently.
