Thank you for sending us 'TITLE.' We appreciate the chance to read it. Unfortunately, the piece is not right for us.

Please know, I was thoroughly engrossed in your writing voice for midway through. I saw a theme developing -- one that tied together the segments. And then I felt it fall apart toward the final few segments.

Thanks again. Best of luck with this.

Sincerely, Tracy Crow Prime Number
