A short, polite, and encouraging personalized response. She was intrigued by the premise, but she didn't fall in love with the sample as much as she had hoped.

Was happy to receive a response! I received a polite form (mentioned below) about a lack of enthusiasm.

Disappointed I didn't get a response after seeing other people queried later than I did and got either rejections or requests. Closing this as a CNR.

Form letter seems to be the one including the phrase, "I don't feel like I could represent your work with enthusiasm," which is rather polite for a form.

Form reject? 6/17.

Didn't have the requisite enthusiasm for the project. Has anyone else had this wording?
