Spiritual Side: The Great Author

As promised in Thursday's post (see: Reflection: Character Flaws), here is another concept I've been chewing on since taking the class, "Creating Characters."

Screenwriting is a microcosm of the Plan of Life. The character knows (or think he knows) what he wants but the writer knows what he needs, and puts the character in situations that will cause growth or learning so the character can become what he needs to become. 

Life is like that. We know what we want, but God knows what we need. He allows us the experiences we need for growth, learning, and to become who we need to become. When tough situations make us cry out, “Why me?" or "Why is this happening?” remember that He wants us to grow and learn and change. He is the screenwriter of our life story, so to speak. Our Creator. He knows the beginning, the middle, and the end. He is the Great Author. Trust Him.
