Will update this when I receive a response.

My manuscript fits her MSWL /EXACTLY/ so I am really hoping that she likes my writing! Fingers crossed. Eep.

Amazing: I received a personal email with the reasons she rejected the ms, including that it was a difficult pass. Clear, straightforward, kind and very valuable. I'm so appreciative.
Sigh. Onward!

Rejected 3/14 (7 days). She had liked my pitmad pitch but ultimately wasn't right for her list. Looks like maybe the pitmad like moved up the query in her queue?

otakumadness, I wouldn't worry too much. :) I did the same thing with a different agent, different agency, years ago. I immediately sent her a note of apology and said it had everything to do with my absentmindedness and nothing to do with my respect for her or her work. She said it was fine and that it happens all the time.

Form query sent Jan. 2019
Accidentally called her "Ms Spencer" because I was confusing her with her agency name, so expecting a CNR... :/
