Sent her a email asking about timelines and I received this response.
I am woefully behind on query reading, I'm not going to lie. I'm dealing with June queries at the moment, initial queries not full manuscripts, so my response times are slow. I'm hoping to pick them up a bit in a couple of weeks when I have cleared editing deadlines.

So, I've never really commented before, but I withdrew a query due to editorial feedback (I'm reworking the first chapter), and she replied and wished my luck on my edits! I just thought it was such a nice thing for her to do, because she didn't have to respond, but it was really encouraging to get that response. She seems lovely.
I had originally queried her 8/12/2020 and withdrew it last week around 9/7 or so, for those who are keeping track of dates.

If its any help, she said she's still going through submissions sent in June. And that was on August 19. Don't give up yet.

FR: 7/13/2020 short, helpful, and personalized deny. Told me I went into too many details and focused on scenery that made my story too slow for her.
