Most people enjoy music, but how should it be used in fiction? Is it okay for authors to put song lyrics directly in their prose, and if so, how much should they use? What about using songs as a plot device or just to set the mood? We’ll cover all that and more. Plus, stick around until the end for a taste of synth-whalepop.
