Today’s song to add to your chill writing playlist is “Always” by the Australian band Panama. It’s soooo good. I’d say go ahead though and buy the whole album because they remix the song and “Strange Feeling” is awesome too. For me, when I write, music is key. I need to get the mood. It also helps keep me motivated. I love, truly love, writing. Writing is my happy place. However, I do not like sitting alone at a keyboard for hours, days, weeks, months at a time. Fortunately, I have friends & family around me but it’s still a solitary endeavor. That is my least favorite part. That’s where music comes in. It makes it a lot more fun. Less fun-crushingly lonely. Sure, there are times when I’m like — oh this is so awesome to sit here by myself typing into the face of eternity but usually that wears off. I usually get in the groove and then look up and a few hours have gone by. I write between pick up and drop off and I know other bestselling authors do the same. More on that later.

In the meantime, here’s a great song Always by Panama from Future Classic Soundcloud
