Very nice, albeit canned response.
Thanks so much for thinking of me, but this one’s just not quite right for my list. Due to a very full workload, I have to be extremely selective about pursuing new projects.

Please know that this is a very subjective business and that tastes range widely among agents. Someone else may feel very differently—you deserve someone who is passionate about your work and is confident about their ability to position it.

Best of luck with this, and thank you so much for thinking of me.

ER 8/24/19 Nicely worded form letter. ( Will post below ) Also got my name right. I hate my full name and sign off with shortened version and most agents just call me by my email name rather than what I sign off on, so it's appreciated when they get my name right. Small things to be happy about as you feel less like a number.

Thanks so much for thinking of me, but this one’s just not quite right for my list. Due to a very full workload, I have to be extremely selective about pursuing new projects.

Does anyone know if she responds to fulls? I received a full request on April 16, to which I nudged on July 15 because I hadn't heard anything, and it's now August 6. I still haven't received a response. It's a shame because she seems like such a fantastic agent.
