Rejection 1/3/22

"Thank you so much for the opportunity to read and consider TITLE. I’m sorry to say that I'm going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it, as I just didn't quite connect with the material on a heart and gut level.
However, I appreciate you sharing your work with me, as the querying process can be quite a challenge. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it."

"Thank you so much for the opportunity to read and consider [TITLE]. I deeply appreciate how charming it is, but I’m afraid that I'm going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it. I just did not connect with the material on a heart and gut level—the kind of connection and conviction you'd want your agent to have. However, I trust another agent will feel differently.
I appreciate you sharing your work with me, as the querying process can be quite a challenge. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it."

Writing is "immersive," but didn't "connect with the material on a heart and gut level." Possible slightly personalized form response.
