501. In God's hand
© Bruce Goodman 23 February 2015
If I was God I’d write a novel. It would probably be better than anyone else’s.
I would get it published. It would sell millions and millions of copies. It would make millions and millions of dollars.
I wouldn’t need a penny of it.
What’s this sitting on my desk? Goodness me! It’s a manuscript! Not written by me! It’s a miracle!
Sitting on top of the manuscript is a letter from a publisher. It’s going to be published! Under my name! I shan’t tell them it was in fact written by God. I shan’t even tell them that I can’t speak a word of Cantonese.
