Day One Begins! - NaNoWriMo 2016

(A note - I will be attempting to post a little NaNo discussion and prompt every day this month. Key word there is "attempt". Last time I tried to do something similar, I fizzled out day 12. But hope springs eternal.)

I come to you with a word count of zero, so that's probably a less than ideal way for me to start NaNoWriMo 2016. Usually, I like to stay up late on Halloween so I can get a day ahead of schedule before I go to sleep, but this year that did not happen. Instead, I woke up early to write, only to make breakfast, do the dishes, and engage in productive procrastination.

It'll be odd, trying to do most of my writing in the morning instead of at night. I've always been a nighttime writer. I like the headspace of knowing that everyone else is asleep and the world belongs to me. Technically, that is still as true at 6AM as it is at 11AM, so maybe it's just a habit dying hard.

Well, we shall see in either case. It's time to start writing. Wish me luck!

PROMPT: Today I give you a free character! Try to add the following character to your novel: A 90-year-old who thinks they are still as spry and energetic as a teenager. (They are not.)
