Notebooking Daily Writing Exercise May 11, 2015

Daily Exercise Genre: Narrative thread.

About today's writing prompt genre: Take the following story aspect and work it into a piece, whether poetry or prose, whether you explore what led up to this place in the story, it begins with the thread, or the thread is merely a tiny aspect of the story that has crystallized around the original image. However you choose to write it, use the following as a jumping off point.

Today's thread is...

Tell the life of an apple from seed (or bud) to consumption.

Be sure to consider different ways which an apple may be consumed: by bugs, animals, humans, time. If humans, it can be juiced, turned into apple sauce, apple pie, an apple fritter, an apple vinaigrette. Consider the circumstances of the apple leaving the tree it grew from, the times it has seen since forming, the potential consumers that in the end were not the end of the apple. Maybe even follow one of the apple's seeds after the flesh of the fruit is eaten or processed. Maybe consider that an apple tree grown from an apple will have completely different apples than the one the seed came from.
