On form letters and personalizing rejections, etc -
It's funny how agents are so different in what form letter they send to people. This week, I had two rejections in a row (not from this agent). One was a form letter full of writing tips, like "find critique partners," "look up Writer's Digest," etc., and the second was (again, a form) saying the writer was a skilled writer (and YES, despite knowing it was a form, I high-fived myself) and they wanted to see their next MS (but didn't think they could sell this one). So. WOW, is writing subjective. LOL.

JessyKah87:

Naomi requested a full from me a few months back, which she ultimately passed on. The letter I received has some personalized comments at the beginning but the closing was similar to what you got. I think she uses a form for most but adds some personalization for requested material, which is nice. Still, I’m choosing to look at that closing -form or not- as a compliment :) she didn’t have to invite us to query her again. A lot of rejections I’ve received just say ‘good luck elsewhere’.

Is anyone getting a rejectionletter that has this on the bottom? I'm trying to decide if it is part of a form or not for future querying.

"I'm so thankful you queried me. I wish you the best with this project and hope you'll keep me in mind in the future - I welcome you to query me with other projects when they are ready!"

Form rejection. She seems like a really decent person and a great agent to work with, but I’m a bit peeved by the advice in the form letter to “follow major writing blogs and Twitter hashtags” and to attend “local writing groups” to “provide some direction”.

I queried as one professional looking for a partnership with another. I don’t appreciate being patronised.

Form rejection, likely the same as others below. Included advice to follow major writing blogs, which rubs me a little wrong, but ah well.

Same nice form letter "love certain elements/others aren't quite working for me" as noted by MR_Work. I appreciate the kindness in her letter, though I'm bummed by the rejection - seems like she would be a great agent to work with.

Dear XX,

Thank you for submitting your query. I am not currently open to the age range of your project, so I will pass at this time - please feel free to resubmit this to me when I am! I will update my query form and my Twitter @naomislitpix when my open ranges change, and I would love to consider your query when I can.

Thanks!
Naomi Davis

Naomi requested a full submission. Unfortunately, she passed on it, but she did give me wonderful critical feedback that is helping me develop as a writer.

Really kind personalised rejection to my full MS; identified areas she thought were strong, and the one issue she felt was holding her back from fully engaging. I'm going to wait and see if any of the other agents with my full come back with the same feedback and, if so, incorporate it into a fresh round of edits.
