That took much longer than I had hoped, but even though it's summer, I'm finding it difficult to find time to write/revise. I'll have to arrange my days so that I have scheduled time to write, otherwise it won't get done.
R3 really liked Ch. 1, which is awesome. She even unknowingly noted that she liked a place I had revised as a result of R1's comments. Excellent.
I think my research paid off, too. We'll see how the rally near the Marine base plays to the audience.
time for sleep. *yawn*.
