The Wide Angle Lens on Helping

It didn’t surprise God that Adam needed a companion. The Creator of time glimpses each moment of it in the same instant. The thought boggles our minds, I know. So let’s move on to something we can comprehend. Now the Lord God said, It is not good (sufficient, satisfactory) that the man should be alone: …

A Wide Angle Lens Look at Mentoring

This post is in preparation for the discussion on “Mentoring” in my Facebook Group which begins on September 7, 2019. If you’re not a member, click through to this link and ask to join. (I let everyone in!) If you haven’t read the fictionalization written from Priscilla’s point of view, do that now. Then you’ll …

What is Mentoring?

This month, I turned my blog into more of a teaching platform. We all know what teachers do, but what is thing called mentoring? A mentor is someone who advises or trains someone (especially a younger colleague) says the dictionary. I’m not a huge fan of this definition because that makes it sound like mentors …

FINDING FOCUS: Mentoring

Mentoring is God’s plan for passing along Christianity and the example of Jesus Christ himself. This month, the blog will take a closer look at this important calling. As in the study book (no longer available for purchase), the study starts with a Portrait. Mentoring is becoming a lost art. As you’ll see in the …

Republishing a post from the early days of my blog…back when I was earning my college degree and had to write a “Ten-Minute Script.” This was first published on my middleagedcoed WordPress blog on February 9, 2013. What do you think? Words well within me, an unquenchable passion, until my fingers transfer them to the …

The Power of Three

With a title like that, this article could be about Charmed or the Trinity or any number of things.

Book Proposal Workshop Woes

A professional spends time and money on education. It’s no different for me as an author. I’ve spend money on conferences, retreats, online classes, books and most recently a workshop. This particular workshop claims to show me the best way to write a book proposal. Fiction writers don’t generally have to write proposals. As the …

Under Construction: Building an Audience

Welcome to Sharon Hughson, author under construction! This is the year. In 2019, I’m going to build an audience of readers. According to marketing gurus, an author needs one thousand dedicated readers to have a successful book launch. And I’m launching (at least) four new books in 2019. Thanks to a few free and paid …

Professional in Need of Feedback

I’m a professional author. That means I write a story and send it off to my publisher. Right? Wrong. In most cases, most professional authors write a manuscript and return to it to rewrite, revise (not the same as rewriting), edit (not the same as revising) and polish (a cat of an entirely different color) …

Many cities tempt the historian or patriot or citizen within you. New York City is an international destination which invites residents of the world to peek inside the headquarters of the United Nations.
