Writing Outside The Lines – Prompt 3

I have been a Star Trek fan for years and this is my favorite quote from the show. I have had only one boss in my entire career that allowed me autonomy and trusted my judgement in doing something “outside the lines”. Every time I would propose something new to him and he said “Make It So” I knew he was onboard with whatever wild idea I had at the time.

One of my favorite things to write with for a prompt is a word list. Using the above quote and the following words … you may use one or all of them … write about a time, a thing, an idea, etc that you were allowed to “Make It So”!

Word Bank:

grovel submerge radiance lower jaded

Remember, you may write in the genre of your choice or a combination … I have been known in challenges to write a piece of flash fiction as well as a poem for the same prompt … this is your challenge with yourself, for you and you make the decisions!

The bottom line is to always have fun!

  1. “Make It So!”

    At one time long ago
    I was on the rise
    Artistic talent

    But the art world…
    Always jaded
    My prospects

    Must I grovel
    Lower myself
    I asked…
    Not my way

    For years
    In harsh reality
    None but myself
    To say
    Let go

    When push
    Meets shove
    & you know
    You must go
    It’s your’s
    To say
    “Make it so!”

  2. Memories of another time.. I used to grovel for his love… I lowered my standards to suit him..becoming jaded and angry
    Until you… I submerged myself in your radiance, felt the warmth of your light.
    Afraid to love until you asked me to simply release my fear and make it happen.. And I did.. And now.. Love
