EQ: 6/10, PitMad query request, including query letter, synopsis, first chapter
ER: 6/11, somewhat personalized. She said I have an interesting idea, but that it's not the right fit for her.

@WhiteGardenia, it's not 100% possible for agents to fall in love with everything in their wishlist. These things are subjective -- the writer's voice and style, the current market demands, and the agent's subjective opinion do matter too -- otherwise every #MSWL or pitch party query would get a full request, wouldn't it? Don't lose hope -- a form rejection doesn't mean you scratch out the agent forever. Jess might be a better fit for your WIP, who knows?

ER: 17-May (form rej.) Says “not the right fit,” although my WF project contains suspense, romance, crime, murder, etc. — everything she mentions in her bio that she’s looking for! Obviously, she’s not interested in my project, but her form letter rejection may as well just say “no thanks” since its elements fit her interests to-a-T. Meaningless.

Not going to query this agent again on my WIP.

A very kind correspondent whose rejection (of my full manuscript) provided a measure of encouragement along with a straightforward reason for why she was passing. I really enjoyed hearing from Ms. Dallow, even when the news was a "no thanks."

I got some specific feedback but based on the comments, I don't think she read past the third chapter.
