Cautious optimism about this one, I think I tick a lot of boxes on her MSWL.

Rejection 22/12/20: Disappointed to say the least, short but personalised response. She felt the narrative and and tension worked really well, but had trouble empathising with the protagonist.

I'm disappointed she didn't offer constructive feedback. Just a standard she didn't connect to it.
