Prompt 56: How about them apples?

From idioms to fairy tales, to Biblical origins and technological giants, the apple holds a special place in our hearts and history. The apple packs a powerful punch for prompt possibilities. So let’s just take a moment and consider, which way our pens are leaning.

Part 1. Start this journaling adventure off by freely brain storming all the apple thoughts you can think from Genesis to Geniuses. Jot down every thing apple that comes to mind whether by doodling, listing, sketching or scribbling. After you have exhausted your basket of apples, or all of your apple thoughts you will go on to journaling.

Part 2. Look at your list of possibilities. Which apple prompt is calling you to write or explore more? Choose one and journal about that specific focus or topic. Your list might include foods, people, stories, ideas, phrases, memory snippets, historical facts and anything at all really.


Respond as you wish to one of the following quotes:

The rotten apple spoils his companion. – Benjamin Franklin

An apple is an excellent thing — until you have tried a peach. -George du Maurier

Surely the apple is the noblest of fruits. – Henry David Thoreau

There’s bad apples in whatever way you want to group people – doesn’t matter if it’s religious, political or social. The big mistake is generalizing.- Charles de Lint

With an apple I will astonish Paris. – Paul Cezanne

Oh, and just in case you are wondering what to sip during this journal time, I recommend Cider! Happy journaling!
