To Nanowri or not?

So a couple of months ago I was fairly enthusiastic about NaNoWriMo, but now that it's time to nationally novel write, I can't bring myself to write anything. I had tons of neato ideas coursing through my head, but now...eh, I don't know. None of my characters or plots I had knocking around inside my head sound interesting enough to write, or fun enough to write for that matter. If I write anything right now I'm afraid it would wind up being a pseudo-Kafkaesque journey of one man through the informal adjudication process of the Social Security Administration.

I might give it a try later but if I don't get anything going tonight, it's not going to happen.

Come on, man! Writing is good therapy. A pseudo-Kafkaesque journey of one man through the informational adjudication process of the SSA sounds like fun to me. Perhaps you could set it in a not-too-distant future when the SSA is little more than a skeleton crew of clerks sending out apologetic disclaimers to enraged citizens who lost every penny they'd invested in their "private savings accounts." ;-)
