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.

Every year it comes down to it...my least favorite question: "So what are your writing goals/projects for the year?" I hate that question with an undying passion. Mostly I hate it so because it reminds me that another year has gone by with what I feel is little to no progress on any of my projects.
In reality I do get quite a bit done and as my DH is so anxious to point out I do have a whole house, family and two jobs to maintain as well. Read more at my blog...

Not anticipation with regard to getting a book published or holding the final product in my hands. No. While I look forward to those things, they no longer excite me like they once did. Once I’m finished with a book, I must dutifully move on to the next because there’s no rest for the wicked. Readers want more and I have so much more to write. Continue Reading...

So, this year, it’ll be 12 short stories plus a collection. Next year the same plus one or two novels. Repeat every year and in fifteen more years I’ll have at least 20 novels plus 15 short story collections and 180 short stories.
And in that way I'll achieve my goal.

(Or “Nothing up my sleeve… Let’s see what books I can pull out of my hat!”)
And so begins a new year. Wow! We’re almost halfway through January already. How’d that happen?
As any successful person knows, setting goals is one way to remain motivated. Well, that and threatening yourself with having to clean the bathroom when you falter. Just sayin’. In my house, I can’t think of anything worse. Cleaning the refrigerator might be a close second — depends on what’s growing inside.
For the last five years I’ve written my annual goals on a Post-It note which is prominently attached to my computer. It gives me a framework as well as a constant reminder to get off my duff and scrub out the toilet…erm…write!
My 2013 list has been posted since the middle of December. (Why wait until the socially acknowledged first of the year for such things? New Year’s Eve is exhausting enough without having to contemplate the next year’s projects through a hangover.)

As the year starts, I've been giving more an more thought to what I want to accomplish and what is realistic to work toward. One of my personal goals--and it impacts my writing goals--is to sit less and be more physically active. What this means in real terms is I need to spend less time noodling around the net. There is an endless stream of content flowing past all our social media sites: twitter, FB, G+, Tumblr. There is an abundance of interesting people saying interesting things.
