God is a creative god, he does not destroy directly. But as creative beings ourselves, like the angels, it is given to us to destroy. In generating the letter sets for a piece of fiction, if we use a set making use of a block such as is used in 12-tone serialism, you essentially end up with nothing more sliding from letter to letter to generate the text than if you simply used the first line of the set:

C R E A T I O N I S T
R E A T I O N I S T C
E A T I O N I S T C R
A T I O N I S T C R E
T I O N I S T C R E A
I O N I S T C R E A T
O N I S T C R E A T I
N I S T C R E A T I O
I S T C R E A T I O N
S T C R E A T I O N I
T C R E A T I O N I S

which in the letter set method is functionally the same as:

C R E A T I O N I S T

and nothing more.
So how do you get the letters to skip?
The answer is you destroy. You remove every other line of the regular block:

C R E A T I O N I S T
E A T I O N I S T C R
T I O N I S T C R E A
O N I S T C R E A T I
I S T C R E A T I O N
T C R E A T I O N I S

I might also mention you could just as well remove two or three rows at a time, but then you would end up with fewer final rows to work with.
