It's getting close to that time of year again

Currently I'm tossing up whether or not to do nanowrimo again this year. Main reasons not to are: (1) still not likely to have much in the way of spare time available; and (2) have even less of an idea of anything than I did last time. The last time (and the one before that), I at least had a vague idea of where the story was going to go in the end (although last year's one ended up going somewhere completely different in the end). This year, I've got a vague starting point and a couple of vague character ideas, but that's about it.

So what I'm looking for opinions on is basically this:

* Is it worth me trying out something again this year, knowing that it's probably not going to go anywhere in particular?


* Is there anything in particular anyone would like me to try my hand at writing? (There's some stuff I probably won't have a go at, but at least listening to other people's ideas might spark off one or two in my own head).

And if anyone's reading this and hasn't seen my last couple of nanowrimo projects, that just means I've forgotten to add you to the filter that sees them - if you're at all interested in seeing the results (if any), just let me know and I'll add you.
