Start a workflow with an absolute path for Dropbox root?

I've searched a bit and have not found a direct answer to this.
I am creating a series of workflows to...
- create a file based on a form input (I have built a custom UI for this)
- save that file to a 'drafts' folder in Dropbox
- display the created file in the editor for review
My question, as you can probably surmise, is regarding starting with a sane (and absolute) path, since Editorial opens in the last location that the user viewed. I need to start the workflow at the dropbox root to ensure that the file goes where it is supposed to go.
I have noticed that I can successfully prepend folder names within the existing workflow template for "set file contents" which would work fine, as long as I can ensure that the user is starting from the root.
Is there a simple way I can begin a workflow by forcing the user to the Dropbox root? os.chdir doesn't seem to have any effect upon the Editorial browser, and I am guessing that the Editorial browser's current folder is what is used in the included workflow action templates for "set file contents"?
