CNR 11/19/19

Met her at a conference and she requested the full there. I'm not sure how to track that she requested the full months ago but I just sent it now. Auto-reply that she's closed to queries.

Not sure why I waited so long to close this out. I guess because she was super enthusiastic when I pitched her in person, so I wanted to hold out hope. No biggie, though. Onward!

I received a "personalized reject", which after reading through the comments I realize it was a canned response worded carefully to seem that it wasn't. That being said, I will continue to hone my craft.

Even though Marisa (or her asst. Amy who signed the email) rejected my manuscript, she offered very good and much-appreciated advice on how to improve the story. Best rejection email ever.

She's been busy planning her own writer's conference and attending others, so hoping to hear back. We had a great meeting at the conference I attended, so I'm reluctant to CNR since she requested a full, expressed a lot of interest, and we had such a wonderful rapport.

Will update if anything comes back.

We felt the time jumps in your opening pages pulled us out of the story. Removing them or finding a stronger way to transition between scenes may help this.
