I ended up choosing to re-do my “Ghost Town Realty” story for NaNoWriMo this year. This is due to a few reasons:
1) I hate “Ghost Town Realty” just slightly less than I hate the other idea I had for this year.
2) I want to infuse more humor into the story, and I think the only way to do that is to start from scratch. I will use nothing that I’d written out from last time I did this (2018?) as far as actual words go, but I’ll probably re-write some scenes to add some actual humor. The story was completely devoid of that last time I attempted it and I really think it drained the life out of the whole thing.
3) I can’t get this damn idea out of my head. I hate it, it’s dumb, and it’s probably been done a billion times, but for whatever reason, the idea keeps sticking with me.
So yeah, that’s the plan.
At least until November 7 when I inevitably change my idea and have to spend the rest of November frantically trying to catch up on word count.
It’s tradition, after all.
