Monday Updates: June 17

How's Life? 
It was a good week. I got to see my niece this weekend (she's lives several states away so I don't get to see her much) and that was a lot of fun. Four-year-olds can be exhausting!

The Stanley Cup series is tied 1-1 between the Blackhawks and Bruins. All I can say is it's going to be a hard fought series. I'm still in shock by the triple overtime in Game 1.

How's TV? 
After having it stuck in my head since I first saw the trailer when it was in theaters, I finally got to see The Words last week. It's a great movie, but not what I expected.

Since all my shows are still in hiatus, I've been wrapped up in working my way through Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Trek: The Original Series. I'm halfway through season three of Buffy and a third of the way through the first season of Star Trek.

How's Reading? 
Books read: 1
Finished one beta read last week and I'm still working on the second. I'm also working my way through Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen and started The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher.

How's Writing? 
Words written: 7,956
Best day: 2,759
My WIP hit 50k and it's still not done! I tend to write first drafts on the short side, so this is excellent. I'm aiming for 60k so I'm expecting it to be finished rather soon. I worked on it steadily all week and then took the weekend off to spend time away from my laptop with family.
