It’s time for our second installment of Writing Prompt Wednesday, when Forum presents our lovely readers a writing prompt for inspiration.

But before we give you the prompt, we want to announce an exciting new contest for anyone who likes a little healthy competition: Whenever you write a poem, story, take a picture, or create a piece of artwork based on these prompts, you can submit it to submissions@forumccsf.org.  In the subject, make sure to write “Writing Prompt Wednesday Competition,” and in the body of the email, please include the writing prompt you used for your piece.

Each week, a winner from these submissions will be chosen by Forum staff and featured on the blog.  All winners will receive a free Forum Spring 2014 edition upon its release, and will automatically be considered for publication in either the Spring 2014 or Fall 2014 editions of Forum Magazine!

And now, without further ado, this week’s prompt is to capture this line, inspired by Journey‘s ode to our lovely city:

So you said you’re lonely?
Well, my friend, I’m lonely too.
