Got off the phone with Claire. While this version of the Onyx proposal (Proposal #7, version 2) needs a bit of reworking, it has passed muster with Claire. Before we can go to contract, however, it has to pass upstairs one level. And that means I need to do significant cosmetic reworking, and add in a few more twists.
No guarantees, no assurances, but now at least I’m standing on the next to last step before GO.
