Queried WF 01/2022. Form rejection 02/2022. Appreciate that she got back to me. Funny side note -- she sent me two rejections for the same project, a week apart.

(Was expecting extra long silence with it being new year)
Form rejection 5 Jan 22

Appreciated the quick reply. Polite and friendly email but very short and generic of course.
