Fast turnaround (three days, with a reply on a Saturday) saying project (sci-fi) not a good fit and apologising for sending a form reply. Knew from Twitter that she was inundated so I'm grateful for her speedy reply and politeness. Any writer represented by her should consider themselves very fortunate indeed.

Form letter rejection:
Thank you so much for sending me this but I'm afraid I will have to pass. I really like the premise of your story but I'm afraid I didn't connect to the pages you sent me the way I'd hoped to. I'm sorry not to have better news, but please remember that my response is subjective, and not a reflection on the quality of your work which was really strong.

I wish you the best of luck in finding an agent for your work.
