Dear Windy,

Thanks so much for thinking of me with this project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t match what I’m looking for at this time. This is an incredibly subjective business, so I encourage you to keep submitting this and I hope other agents feel differently!

Best of luck!

I submitted a partial manuscript and received a very sweet response. It wasn't for her but she said I was "so close" and she loved my protagonist and writing style. Just needed to work on pace. It was a beacon of light in a sea of form rejections or non-responses. What a nice person. I am recharged.
