Lemons and Lemonade Creative Writing Prompts

We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons. -Alfred Newman

Good morning!  Perhaps you might have heard a quote similar to this one: 

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. I have several stands around here. James Brady

Our creative writing prompts today will be based on lemons vs. lemonade. 

Fiction:  Think up a situation that starts out as a lemon, but ends up being being lemonade.  For example, I've read a true story about two people who were stuck in an elevator for hours and ended up falling in love.  They got married. 

Creative Nonfiction:  Have you had any past lemon-like situations in your life that ended up being lemonade in the end?  Write about one.

Poetry:  Start with a negative image or situation, but end it with positivity. 

Please fell free to post part of what you write.  I promise I will read every comment!
