I really appreciate when an agent (or agency) has a supportive and encouraging form for rejection. Seriously, it takes the sting out, and there is no reason for them to burn bridges. This was a lovely form rejection.

Check in: 9/18/16. Said it was still under consideration.

I received a VERY nice and encouraging email from Caitlin, telling me my work isn't exactly what she represents and she's busy now, but if it's still available in 6-12 months to let her know.
