#ownvoices - POC mswl - decided to query.
Results:

EQ: 9-18-2020
FR: 9-24-2020 sent same day
Emailed me back enthusiastically to confirm this was an ownvoices MS and if I’d be interested in making the girls older. I said yes, as I’m open to any changes.

Three months passed - understandable

On 1-6-21 - I sent a polite check in to see if she’d be open to a few changes I wanted to make, so far nothing.

I would withdrawal as I’m now working with an editor on a full manuscript evaluation. But since no word from my nudge a month ago - maybe it was a rejection with no response, which seems to be the new thing around here on fulls. At least for me, anyway.
