Same form rejection saying she didn't connect with the story enough to champion it.

Slightly personalized, saying she didn't connect with the concept, and "your word count is currently too low." I knew it was a little on the shorter end, but that's the first time I've seen that in a rejection. Interesting

@jomecki: It's part of her form rejection. I've seen a lot of form rejections with similar advice. A lot of people start querying without ever showing their material to anyone or they show it to the wrong people (who will only say positive things and never point out what doesn't work), but that clearly doesn't apply to you, so I wouldn't worry about it!

Her rejection suggested I get beta readers and critique partners, but I've already had 5 beta readers. Not sure if that's part of the form rejection, but it really rattled my confidence.

Changing agencies notice: 01/06/2020 - Said she was still interested and to resubmit to her at her new agency
New QM: 01/29/2020 (query materials only)
ER: 03/14/2020

Kinda bummed she didn't want to see the full manuscript again. Mentioned that she liked the premise but not the synopsis's progression of the story, though I'd submitted the same synopsis both times. Oh well! Probably was just bad timing.
