Welcome to BEYOND THE SHELF on


BEYOND THE SHELF is general commentary about the blog or the mystery and crime writing business by author and site administrator Shannon Muir that doesn’t fall in the scope of a regular column. This week’s topic takes on managing to write, but still searching for focus.

Lately I’ve struggled with writing bits and parts of different stories. I’m pulled in a number of directions, wanting to do different things. I know it would be better strategically to focus on just one project, but at the moment that’s just difficult. At least I feel like I am making some progress.


Right now I just try to be pleased if I can get in a little writing each day. It’s a step in the right direction… and I’ll take all those I can get.
