When does the author set the mood for a story?
The mood in a story is something that can be set throughout a story. At any moment it can change as well. The mood can go from bemusing to frightened to amused. All in the span of a few pages. As the author you decide the mood for a story and how you change it depends on your story. Of course in setting a mood or changing it, of course it must make sense.
Asked in Writing: Plot and Setting
How does the setting contribute to the mood of a novel?
The setting is where the story takes place. Sometimes, the setting is not important for the mood -- the story of the Heroic Quest, for example, can take place anywhere from a fantasy countryside to a big city to outer space. Sometimes, the setting helps set the mood, as in a horror story set in a spooky old house or a romantic story set in an exotic location.
