No confirmation of full MS receipt. Thinking of emailing at the one month mark just to confirm it reached her inbox?

8/25/16 - MS was chosen for Pitch Wars. Emailed that I will be revising. She's agreed to wait and is "excited" to see revised version. (At this point I'm dealing more with Amanda Jain than Michelle, but since I queried Michelle originally I'm leaving the comments here.)
