writing: plot bunny

Plot bunnies everywhere!

These plot bunnies just don't stop coming, do they?

Today another plot bunny appeared in my mind while I was reading. Now I'm debating which plot, if either, to use for Nanowrimo. This leads to a list. [Yes, I'm aware that most of you have no idea what either plot is.]

Pros of Using Plot One
1. The "research" for this one is easy.
2. I have a situation that can go in many directions.

Cons of Using Plot One
1. The main character is a guy. Although I don't mind writing a guy as the main character, I'm not quite as good at it. Okay, this isn't so much a con as a comment.
2. I have a situation that can go in many directions.

Pros of Using Plot Two
1. The main character will be easier to write.
2. The plot is somewhat autobiographical.
3. I have a general sketch for the plot.

Cons of Using Plot Two
1. The plot is somewhat autobiographical.
2. I have no direction in the plot.

Actually, Plot Two [today's bunny] is starting to sound more interesting right now. We'll see what happens come November.
