Monday Updates: June 23

How's Life? 
It was an off week. The only good news is it's officially summer! I love the feeling of possibilities that summer brings. I love the fresh watermelon and eating steaks off the charcoal grill and stealing mulberries from the tree across the road. I love the turtles coming up to lay their eggs and walking through the woods in the shade of the trees. I just wish I could have all of that without the humidity.

How's TV? 
ROBERT DOWNEY JR SIGNED ON TO TWO MORE AVENGERS MOVIES. I was terrified that he might leave Iron Man, but he's staying and I'm so excited! No news of a fourth Iron Man, but I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. Iron Man 3 was my favorite of the trilogy and I'd love to see one more.

I'm still working my way through Buffy. I'm four episodes away from the two-part finale for season three.

How's Writing? 
Total words: 3,756
Best day: 1,520
Like I said, it was an off week. I'm getting close to the end with my WIP and, for once, the ending isn't the easiest part. I think I might actually exceed my word count goal with this one, though.

How's Reading? 
Books read: 1
I finished reading The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher. It had a great premise, but it didn't really live up to what I hoped for. I'm still working my way through Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen and I've also started rereading Paper Towns by John Green. I realized that it's been a while since I've read something I truly loved, so I hoped a reread of one of my favorite books would cleanse my reading palate.
