NaNoWriMo ideas

I need feedback, votes, opinions, what have you's. I may not listen but I need them anyway.

For NaNoWriMo , should I write about

A) A tender and heartwarming coming of age story about a teenage boy and his relationship with his grandfather. This will include copious amounts of Zombie Nazi's on Jetpacks with Rayguns. It fits in, trust me. This is, in fact, my most fleshed out idea.

B) A detective story about a murder mystery in the Arthur Freed unit at MGM during Hollywood's golden age, with a Comden and Green type as wise cracking amateur detectives. Requires too much research perhaps, but it's research I've spent much of my life doing.

3) The Folkloric Adventures of Hammerhead Lincoln, Time-Traveling Ex-President. I can't explain this one - but maybe there's a team of time traveling presidents - and they have crazy adventures. And it's based on a series of tweets from a month or two ago. Sort of a Paul Bunyon ala steampunk feel.

or Bacon. A novel about Bacon.

None of these ideas have an ending. I clearly have no idea what I am doing. Help me. Stop me. Leave me comments here or on the Facebook or on the Twitter, however you heard of this ...

Well, I wouldn't do the Lincoln one because:

Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of the Amazon best-seller Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is already hard at work on his next novel. Zombies is an adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, adding the element of the undead to the original text.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Grahame-Smith signed a two-book deal rumored to be worth $575,000 and is currently working on his next novel. He’s aiming to have a draft finished by the fall for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. You read that correctly – Grahame-Smith is re-imagining our sixteenth president as a badass vampire hunter.

Yeah... That one's taken.

Personally I like the Grandfather/Zombies one.
