Shattered Glass by AC Katt - Lyrics
I started to write Shattered Glass for NANOWRIMO in November of 2008. For those of you who are unfamiliar with NANOWRIMO it stands for National Novel Writing Month and it is held every November. The object of the contest is to write a fifty-thousand word novel within the month of November. Winners are simply those who finish the task. Shattered Glass eventually became over ninety-thousand words, but the basic book started small, before extensive revisions at fifty-thousand for NANOWRIMO.
Initially, I had structured the as a series of flashbacks, but that didn’t work. After several attempts ending in failure, to shore-up that approach, I was advised by my stalwart Beta Reader, Crossthebar, to put it in chronological order. This worked well and with the exception of a single event, all of the novel’s action now takes place in sequence.
I realized soon after beginning the novel that since Shattered Glass was a band, the band needed songs, or, at the very least lyrics. After a bit of soul-searching, I decided to write the lyrics myself. As portrayed in the novel, Milo and Liam wrote music together with Liam as the composer and Milo as the lyricist. While separated from Liam, Milo wrote a book of poetry entitled Words Without Music. Liam wrote songs for two solo albums. All of the lyrics I wrote for the book are credited to Milo’s book, Liam’s albums or the albums that Shattered Glass recorded prior to the breakup. Here are some sample lyrics. Shattered Glass will be available June 30th from Captiva Press at www.captivapress.com
