CNR: 9/30/30
R: 10/13/20 I had marked this as closed since it was more than three weeks, but today, I got a personalized rejection with a couple compliments followed by something about not connecting with it.

#DVPIT Request
EQ 4/23: Since Julie Gwinn already had it for review, was instructed to hold off and then submit to Ms. Novak if Ms. Gwinn should pass.
EQ 8/18: Queried Ms. Novak following a pass from Ms. Gwinn's full review and editorial feedback/requests. Applied some requested changes, but was not in agreement with all since they would alter the entire plot of the story.
Partial Request 9/9 - Sent same day.
