Short and nice rejection with a little bit of personal. It’s something common that I’ve seen in replies from other agents so far, but it’s totally fixable! I’ll be revising!

QM: 06/10/20
ER: 07/27/20 - polite form. I always wonder if these "long compared to the agent's average" rejections mean the work was under consideration but ultimately was a pass, or if it's just totally random. :)

I appreciated the quick response time, even if it was just a form letter. Better than a CNR.

Rejection was this; a form letter?

I'm sorry to write that I’m passing on your project.

Please be aware that this is a selective and subjective industry. What doesn’t fit one agent may be an excellent fit for another. Honing craft and searching widely is key!

Thank you for thinking of me for this project, and best of luck with your future queries.
