May 2013 Meeting Reminder

Hope to see you at this week’s monthly meeting on Thursday night:

May 23rd from 7 to 9PM.

St. Andrews United Methodist Church
3315 Bryan Road
Family Center-Room 305
Brandon, FL 33511

Monthly prompt, should you choose to write on this one:
“Craft a story, true or imagined, about a time when you witnessed the beauty of brokenness. We see examples of this almost every day because people like this are all around us.”
From The Beauty of Christ through Brokenness (by K.P. Yohannan), comes this quote: “God is looking for humble people, not able people.” The author uses Isaiah 66:2 to affirm: “But on this one I will look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit and who trembles at My word.” He compares us in our natural, human “unbroken” (prideful, self-centered) state to what God really wants – our brokenness, so that we are totally surrendered to Him.
Writing brought for critique can be fiction, non-fiction, or poetry. No more than two pages, typed, double-spaced, one-inch margins. Please bring 10-15 copies if you would like written critique.

About Kat Heckenbach

Kat grew up in the small town of Riverview, Florida, where she spent most of her time either drawing or sitting in her "reading tree" with her nose buried in a fantasy novel...except for the hours pretending her back yard was an enchanted forest that could only be reached through the secret passage in her closet... She never could give up on the idea that maybe she really was magic, mistakenly placed in a world not her own...but as the years passed, and no elves or fairies carted her away...she realized she was just going to have to create the life of her fantasies. She shares that life with her husband and two homeschooling kids. Kat is a graduate of the University of Tampa, Magna Cum Laude, B.S. in Biology. She spent several years teaching, but never in a traditional classroom--everything from Art to Algebra II. Her writing spans the gamut from inspirational personal essays to dark and disturbing fantasy and horror, with over forty short fiction and nonfiction credits to her name.
