I'm seriously rethinking this. One thing that was stopping me was my aversion to grinding out 1700 words per day. Some days this won't be possible, and it just sounds too mechanical Then I came across this woman's vlog: 5,000 words her first day. 5,000 words her last day. Taking days off in the middle. This sounds more like me. I did some research and, although NaNiWriMo encourages starting with a new work, this isn't a absolute rule as long as already-written words are not submitted. I'm 4,000 words into Mammon's Throne, but have been stuck for months. Maybe I'll go with this.
