More work on the hawk story. I've got 5700 words, so that's about 300 new words today. Most of today's work was on the character's struggle to make his first key decision. Before I had made it much too easy on the hero--he'd do anything to help the girl. But that's not really true--there are plenty of evil things he wouldn't do to help her, and what the bad guys want him to do falls into that category. It's a hard decision and a very narrow course for him to thread. This draft draws that out a lot more clearly.
Now, though, it's bed time.
