The Wings of an Ego  January 9, 2010 - February 9, 2010

Reading and Deliberating


Write a poem or short story (it says any writing, but I'd prefer poems and short stories, but it's your pick) about a person so egotistical that their ego pulled them through whatever hard time they were going through or helped them in their life's journey in an outstanding way.

Thanks for submitting anything, and good luck to everyone who enters!

"Here stands someone broken long ago,
Riding away on the wings of an ego." ~J S Dunn
