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.

Year's Goals: Stick To Your Guns

As we approach the end of the year, we tend to look back and wonder where the time went, if the year was a prosperous one, and how many socks you could've lost to the Underpants Gnomes in just one year. Or you know, take a look back at your goals and if you reached them.

This year I've kinda' stuck to my guns about the writing goals.

Zette's 2013 Projects

With only about 85k to go to reach 1 million new words this year, you can imagine that I've done a lot of projects. Not so many as you might think, though. A novel a month? It's possible for a first draft if you are really dedicated and writing has become your profession. You also have to want to write them, and not spend your time surfing the web, watching shows you don't particularly like, etc. Not many people can devote the amount of time I have to writing. I'm lucky.

Year in Retrospection - 2013

"Year in Retrospection." Wow! Has it been that long already?

I'd like to say I completed everything on my list from last year, but I'd be lying. Not to be a downer, but I rarely do finish everything... Life has a tendency of throwing curve balls when you least expect it, and this year hasn't been any different from any other.

Let's get cracking!

Looking back five-sixths in

Back in January, I had some grandiose ideas of what I would accomplish this year; I've accomplished almost none. To see what I haven't gotten to and why I'm okay with this, read <a href="">the rest on my blog</a>.
