After giving her a deadline of two weeks to get back to me before I accepted other offer, she said she was reading the full and would, but did not respond within the time frame.

Looks like she almost never follows up after manuscript requests.

She's had my full since December 2020 but always responds promptly and kindly to my nudges. Not sure what to make of it, only that until I get an offer, I will continue to nudge her every 4-6 months and hope she eventually gets around to it.

According to her timeline, she requests within a day or so, and she requested a query sent after mine. Not a fan of false hope, so I'll add another red face to my list, but not before I write another rejection letter I didn't receive.

Dear delusional hopeful,

Thank you for submitting your query for the manuscript that you have labored over for a significant fraction of your life. I just didn't connect with it on that deep level you need an agent to feel about your work. I'm sure it's my fault and not yours or some lengthier expression of that cliche. Of courser persistence is key in this endeavor, even as you fail to elicit even an auto-sent form rejection and will forever wonder if your work was ever read. Good Luck!

What can I say? It's cathartic.
