about “the assassination of flies”

As part of National Novel Writing Month, I have dedicated this blog to be used for portraying my 30-day novel, “The Assassination of Flies.”  I have attempted NaNoWriMo for 6 years.  I have never finished.  The goal is a measly 50,000 words in 30 days (about 60 hours), and for once, I want to finish.  I don’t believe my story will fit neatly into such a short space, but I know that putting that much work into it will land me into a position where I have no reasonable choice but to complete the work.

That said, here is a brief synopsis.

Imagine a world where magic and technology coexist in harmony.  Sorcerers and scientists have worked side by side for centuries to create a true Utopian society, free of hunger, disease, crime or war.  For over a thousand years, Tylei has thrived under the most peaceful of circumstances.  And then the sickness came:  without warning, without vaccine, without cure.  Nine of ten died in hours, those that survived found themselves grossly disfigured, deaf, blind or all three.  A very small few found themselves immune.

It has been thirty years since the sickness, and where once there was bliss and harmony, there is chaos and conflict.  Andrin Keller was born into such a new world.  Barely twenty-five, he has no concept of the Tylei that existed before him.  His latent magical talents place him at the forefront of a growing rift in the new society, and despite his objections, he may be Tylei’s only hope of avoiding another sickness and possibly the planet’s total destruction.
