Polite check-in: 12/1
David responded on 12/5 stating that he'd read, set aside, and would like a bit longer to consider.

Update: ER 2/12 - David said he liked the changes I'd made (sent an updated version last month) but ultimately didn't fall in love with it.

he seems to skip around and hold queries for a further decision-making process.
Seeing as he only asks for a query. << I am so wrong. Apparently there was a form, I presume I've sent my materials through the form. So I wait, in any case.
