8/27 -- I rarely nudge, but at the 120 day mark I felt comfortable dropping a short, polite note.
8/28 -- About 24 hours post-nudge, I got what I assume was a form email rejection. "While there was a lot to like here, I just don't have the passion, yada yada..."
Pulling no punches (because why should we?) I was honestly hoping that by holding on to my manuscript for four months, she was giving it some serious consideration, and there would maybe be some actual feedback on a "no." Sadly, just more of the same -- rejection and ambiguity.
9/4 -- The very next week I received an offer of representation from another agent who had requested the full a month later, and actually read it. So I'm good.

'Thank you for thinking of us with SHADOW-STAINED but the project does not look like a fit for me at this time. I'm being extremely selective with fiction these days and this is a very subjective decision on my part. So I'm sure another agent or editor will feel differently.'
