Form: Thank you for your query. While your project does sound interesting, I'm afraid it's not quite right for me at this time. I genuinely appreciate your email and wish you luck finding an agent who can successfully champion your work.

Sent nudge on 9/16/19 now that she’s reopened to queries again. Maybe she didn’t receive my original query. Couldn’t hurt to resend!
Update: She didn’t respond to my nudge, so I’m taking that as a sign that she’s not interested so I won’t bother her again. I doubled checked and had the right email both times. Too bad. She was the one agent I saw who seemed to love Judy Blume as much as I do and I was really excited about her. She seems like a great agent. Oh well. Querytracker automatically CNR this one for me, but I’m officially closing it out myself. On to query other agents!

Form letter: "Thank you for your query. While your project does sound interesting, I'm afraid it's not quite right for me at this time. I genuinely appreciate your email and wish you luck finding an agent who can successfully champion your work."

Though it's a form rejection, I really like how it's worded.
Also, she did take the time to personalize it by adding my name.

This message was on her twitter. I sent my query in on 5/23 so I hope this is the reason why I haven’t heard anything yet! :)

Dearest writers: I find myself with a backlog of queries and submissions again & will be closing to queries (except for referrals/conference requests) from July 15 thru Sept 15 to catch up. So send in those queries soon if you're ready--and if not, I'll see you in the fall!
