Marianne Merola at Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents sent this Zen lesson in simple rejecting to a reader who wishes to share it with you: "Thank you for thinking of me in connection with your writing. I don't think that I would be the best person to work with you on this project, but I do wish you all good luck placing it in the right hands." Except for the weird literary agent speak ("I do wish you all good luck"), it is a pretty nice example of noncommittal rejecting. Well played, Marianne.
