Dear Sophia,

Thank you so much for letting me review TITLE, but I’m going to decline at this time. Unfortunately, your pages just aren't grabbing me in the way I had hoped they would. I know you've put a lot of time and effort into your project. Take heart: the publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for me could be just what another agency is looking for. I strongly encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication.
If you're unsure where to look next in your search for the perfect agent, I highly suggest checking out Writers Digest Guide to Literary Agents blog, as well as sites such as Manuscript Wishlist and Query Tracker. I have found them to be a great resource for finding new agents that are looking to build their lists.
Thank you for considering me for your manuscript and I wish you great success with your writing career. I hope you'll consider me again for your next work of art."

Rejection: 8/12/21 - "not falling in love the way I need to"

Look. I get it. This industry is subjective. But the only thing it's ever taken me this long to realize I wasn't in love with was my ex-boyfriend. Le sigh.
