Emailed Query : 5/3/2018 SF 120K
Form Letter Rejection : 5/11/2078, similar to others listed below:
"As to your material I'm afraid I will be passing -- I'm just not drawn strongly enough to the concept of your story to feel that I'd be the right agent for the project. I realize it is difficult to make an assessment from a query; nevertheless please know that I give serious attention to every letter, outline, and writing sample I receive."

I had hopes for this one - she appears to be very interested in SF.

EQ 7/30/17.
Reminder email ("did you get my query?") 9/12, six weeks after initial query. Included the full query content in the new email.
PR 9/29/17 with explanation that she never received my initial query, and even my reminder got caught in spam folders.
Confirmed receipt 10/2

Checked in on 2/28/18 with "did I miss an email of yours this time?", since this partial has been out a liiiiittle beyond the estimated 6 weeks.
No response by 3/18/18 so I tried again from another email account.
Tried again on 5/7/18 because I had some news (pitch response from another DMLA agent), and it got me a ER.
