@swatithegeek, thank you for the suggestions! I haven't nudged, but I will try that today.

eflora, you can email her and nudge, if you haven't already, or simply email to withdraw your query, wait up to a week for her to reply (they generally reply within hours when you withdraw, based on my past experience!!!) and then query someone else at Writers House regardless. You notified her -- you did your part. *shrug*

I queried Rebecca on 03/08 from a #pitmad like and haven't heard anything since. At this rate I would really just like to query someone else at the agency. I'm not sure if it's safe to CNR and query someone else at Writer's House.

Kind rejection. Assistant Alexandra said they'd reviewed my work and weren't connecting wholeheartedly, despite its "many charms." I appreciated that, and the quick response. Update: 1/17/18 (as per @m_pepper it looks like this was a form rejection)

Same form note from Alexandra as Eliza_f: "I’ve reviewed your work with Rebecca and I’m sorry to say that we weren’t connecting wholeheartedly with your writing, despite its many charms, so we should step aside. We truly appreciate the look, though, and we wish you nothing but the best of luck with your future endeavors."
