My rejection just arrived at 593 days, with a kind note that didn't have to be. Yes, it was a form letter, but it reminded me of Elizabeth's humanity. Imagine having a to-do list this long? The publishing system is hard on agents too, not just writers.

599 days. What is the point in sending a form rejection after more than a year and a half? It's a dead project. Your superior friends have already made it very clear that you don't think I'm any good. What benefit does this offer?

And for the record, because many people are fooled: Copps was also impressed by the "effort and creativity you've put into your work," wishes that "you've already found the perfect representative for your work," etc. It's a form letter meant to resemble a personalized letter. Just another trick that these sociopaths have added to their kit.

I received a rejection letter after 602 days. In it, she apologized for the length of time it took her to reply. Rather than being hurt by the rejection, I felt soothed that she was even making an effort to reach out! So many agents don't reply at all. The note was kind, warm, and professional.

Part of the rejection:
"I recognize the effort and creativity you've put into your work, and I truly apologize for the length of time that lapsed between receiving your query and this message. I hope that you've already found the perfect representative for your work, but I did want you to know that I read your submission despite the shameful timeline."

She said she'd update me with feedback no later than 05/01, but she's incredibly busy, so I'm keeping the faith: 06/18/2024
