God the Author

I'm still surprised at the complete, and well thought out posts coming from this Teenage Authoress. Here's some of her latest.

Teenage Authoress in "God the Author and Us the Authors."

God is the Author of Creation. Authorship implies writing something, not just creation, but writing. [...] If God is an author, the Author, that must mean He has a story and as ruler of all creation - past, present and future - His story is history - the story of the world and, therefore, creation.

The world isn't a stage, its a story.

And now the idea I thought a little 'off': If God is The Author, then what about us novelists? We are authors as well. Almost unwillingly I continued to follow this idea and realized that, yes, in some sense, authors are little gods of their own novels.

She continues further on:

Authors are little gods of their universes as they create them. Plotting and controlling them just as God oversees our own universe (an argument for predestination) and at the same time we, as authors, often are surprised by our own characters in the decisions they make (an argument for free will), but generally we always realize we would've planned that any way (predestination being completely compatible with free will).

[...]

Authors generally create more than one storyworld. Do we have any evidence that God has not done the same?

Fascinating thoughts.
