I'm Jewish writing a story that at least Modern Orthodox I hope will consider fit to read, even if not necessarily to be consider frum by some to the right.
I'm at the point where the heroine needs a direct audience with Hashem for advice.
Now, I fully understand that in Torah that Hashem is supposed to be completely invisible and at most represented by an angel in the real and normal world.
That's a given. But the heroine is near death and semiconscious, certainly not in a realm of her own, and is not fully lucid. May Hashem appear to her in a form she is comfortable with, such as a person who only indirectly refers to Himself as Hashem, the better for her to understand His instructions?
Do observant writers have some choices regarding respectful depiction in literature?
