In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.

In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.

Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.

We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

Finding the Write Place

I used to sit at the kitchen island and type my little eyes off, but as I got older that became somewhat uncomfortable. Bar stool chairs hurt my rear and I often found my feet falling asleep. Since I have a laptop I thought to myself, It goes on your lap, silly. That’s why they call it a laptop.  So I started leaning back in my favorite living room chair to write. It was after several months of this that I began to notice a slight problem. Continue reading on my blog.

Where Is My Favorite Writing Space?

My favorite writing spot happens to be among the giant coastal Redwoods of California and on the cold and overcast beaches of the North Coast. I can't tell you how many times I've dipped half a leg in the freezing waters of the Pacific, paper and pen in hand. Read more...

Welcome to Z Command Center

Hi there! I'm Zette's Muse, and I thought I'd take a few minutes away from tormenting . . . inspiring Zette to show you her work area. So, welcome to the spot where Zette spends the majority of her time. We'll tour the various controls and additions to this location. Please also note that while most assume the 'Z'  in Z Command Center stands for Zette, people should realize that Zaphod (present in the photo) disagrees. Though he has accepted the title of 'Second in Command' this may be a misnomer since Zette doesn't appear to be in charge of anything at all.

my favorite writing place, or lack thereof

I meant to publish my post first thing this morning, but then daylight savings time closed my eyes with her melancholy fingers and here I am at noon with my essay finally written and posted for the whole world to see. Read it here.

There's No Place Like Home

When my kids were rug-rats, this narrow, little room off our living room was their playroom. It was a hodgepodge of books, toys, games, and art supplies for about 12 years of our life in this house we've lived in for the past 19 years. When the kids got old enough that their 'toys' became gaming systems instead of matchbox cars, they took over the finished side of the basement.  I refer to it as 'the man pit.'  I claimed the room they no longer used as my office.

Strange Places

When I started writing seriously, I had an interesting, involving career and three kids, the youngest still in preschool, so finding time to write or edit was a challenge. I had access to a computer at work and my company didn’t mind a certain amount of personal use, but that gave me only a few minutes a day. So I learned to write in snatches...

My not-so-little room

I do most of my writing at the computer -- currently, the family computer, which is positioned in the living room so I can look out the front window to rest my eyes if need be. For more on where I write -- and where I'd like to write -- read more on my blog.
