Fairy Tales Can Come True... can happen to you!

I will be putting up a few different versions of this song — as well as other fairy-tale themed songs — in between the Q & A's this week. Just for fun. And you know me and song lyrics. A writer asked me the other day if you're allowed to quote from a song in a story, or if you need permission. This instantly shot me back two decades when I subbed a story to a big-time magazine. My piece began with an entire paragraph of Prince. No joke. The editor cut the lyrics (copyright infringement, and all that) but took the story!

Which proves... fairy tales can come true. It can happen to you...
