Day 30: Today’s Writing Song

Check out the Aurora Borealis (Norther Lights) seen in the Edmonton area last night! (Below.)

I Ran (So Far Away) by A Flock of Seagulls has been a long-time favourite. The extended version allows a writer to escape into a world of creation. Phrases like “a beam of light comes shining down on you” and “Aurora Borealis comes in view” inspire a sci-fi element.

The pace and rhythm of this song also make it perfect for running and other aerobic exercises, as well as free-weight and repetition workouts.

Speaking of Aurora Borealis, this picture was taken last night in Sherwood Park, just outside of Edmonton, Alberta, by Kelsey Hoople.
