given the half -note E being held while playing those notes
I am not sure what that means.
Other than the fact that I have put considerable extra "rests" towards the end as I try to remember where my fingers need to go next, purely a consequence of posting prior to taking the time required to learn the section well, when I listen to this I cannot help but feel pleased with the result. You are not writing your sections the way I would have any more than I am writing mine the way you would have and at first I even found myself questioning some of your choices, and yet for a first effort at a joint composition I think we are doing a fine job indeed and when I play it through and listen to my posting I not only understand but I fully approve of the choices I initially questioned. Interesting exercise and I am looking forward to your final submission.
I did leave you with a bit of a challenge as you have the task of leading the listener back into the key of Am. I haven't tried this myself (it is after all your measure) but I suspect it may be a bit tricky. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
Perhaps I should apologize for the difficulty this piece is proving to be, but I won't. Firstly, it was not my intention...it just somehow went in that direction...and secondly it may have stretched you (and me) but I think as a learning experience we are both the better for it.
