8/26/2021: very polite rejection just one day later

"...I'm afraid, though, that after reading your letter and sample, I just didn't feel strongly enough to ask for more, and I firmly believe every writer needs an agent who is passionate about their work. Much of this boils down to personal preference, so please bear in mind that what isn't right for me might be right for another agent. I encourage you to continue querying and working on your next book.

I wish you the best of luck and much success with your writing career. And, most importantly, I hope you stay safe and healthy!"

Form letter rejection, but at least it was quick!

I don't want to critique this form letter too much because it was at least courteous, but this wording is bothering me:

"I'm afraid, though, that after reading your letter, I just didn't feel strongly enough to ask for more..." - I think I know what she's trying to say -- that from my letter her interest wasn't piqued enough to even read the sample -- but it kind of makes it sounds like she's not interested in reading more of my letter. I don't know. Just weird wording for me.

FQ 4/3/21
Memoir
ER 4/5/21 "While I am actively looking to build my nonfiction list, I am being incredibly selective, and I'm concerned that your platform isn't strong enough just yet."
I guess she wants a person with a large social media following? Definitely don't have that.
