So this week on Writers Chat, I found myself stretched from my comfort zone. Our wonderful co-hosts, Bethany Jett, Jean Wise, and Johnnie Alexander were all swept away in various writing adventures. So we asked one of our gifted authors and speakers at Serious Writer, Tina Yeager, to step in and host for them. Which she graciously did. Then, the gal who likes to stay behind the scenes, yours truly, needed to step it up and co-host.
I won’t lie, I was pretty nervous. But Tina and the Writers Chat gang are a joy to work with, and our guest, Tom Blubaugh, made the experience all the more memorable.
