Welcome to the November 2014 NaBloPoMo writing prompts! As with all NaBlo prompts, Saturday and Sunday are for free writing. And as usual in November, there is no theme this month … but many of these prompts are inspired by the BlogHer PRO '14 Conference in December and the upcoming BlogHer PRO School writing lessons in November. (More on PRO School later this week!)
All the prompts for the month are listed below, so you can plan ahead. Feel free to use some and not others as you get inspired … they're here to help!
