Personalized pass--9/6

Received a pass today after she read full manuscript. Despite her rejection, I appreciated her insightful feedback. I could tell she read it, and put lots of thought into comments. That type of feedback is priceless. If I don't land an agent with this project, I'll definitely query her again when I complete the second one.

She tweeted that she was up-to-date on queries as of May 9th, and my query was sent prior to that, so I marked it as a rejection.
