---------
6/7: She asked if I was working on anything else after rejecting my initial MS, so I pitched something I just started
6/10: Said she was interested in the concept and to send when I was ready
8/10: Sent partial MS draft and she asked when she could read the full
8/27: Full draft sent
8/30: Confirmed receipt
9/14: Incredibly kind rejection—said she loved the writing and is open to future projects, but this one would be a hard sell. Definitely not the answer I was expecting, but what can you do.

Now, we wait.

Rejection 8/26/21 ... without anything that I can work on to improve, which is hard. (Pasted below)

Thank you for the opportunity to consider XXXXX! Unfortunately, I cannot offer representation at this time. While you're clearly a very talented writer, I didn't connect with the manuscript as much as I would've hoped.

Of course, this is only one opinion and I wish you the best of luck!
