-Email kept bouncing back. Finally got it to go through by making sure there were no caps in the subject line. Hopefully that's helpful to others who might be in the same boat!

Nudge with offer of rep: 1/21/22
2nd nudge: 1/31/22

*Really concerned my e-mail just never went through as it seems that she typically responds to nudges, but I'm withdrawing at this point!

"Thank you so much for sharing [TITLE], and for considering me for representation. I’ve reviewed your work, and I’m afraid that I’m just not wholeheartedly connecting with your project, so I’m going to step aside.
As you know, this is an incredibly subjective business, and another agent may very well feel differently. I truly appreciate the opportunity to review your work, and I hope you find someone who is passionate about your project and confident in their ability to champion it. I wish you all the best, and thanks again for thinking of me."
