Polite, standard email:

Thank you for thinking to query me with your project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like a good fit for my list at this time. Again, thank you, and best of luck finding an agent.

she has a pretty high response rate. Should I nudge her since it's been a little over a month?

Very warm, personal, detailed email about why she chose not to offer representation. Loved the writing and stories, but didn't love the novel-in-stories structure. Wanted a single narrative.
