Got a response back from a publisher on some work I submitted. The response was:

"We looked at your submission and at this time, it appears not at this time ready.
Suggestion - seek critiques on the repetition and password sentences.
Regards,"

My question is, what is a password sentence? Also, isn't it ironic that they used repetition a sentence before criticizing repetition?

Ow.

I believe what they are saying is that you are writing sentences which sound like they were procedurally generated, as with a random password generator. While they may be parsable, they are inartistic. Clunky. Unrhythmic. Painful to read.

The general advise is to study some poetry. Without seeing an example of your work I can't suggest more.

I was thinking the same as you OP. For an editor their response was poorly written. Very poorly written.
Unless they were being a sarcastic asshole and were trying to illustrate whats wrong with your prose.

Need some good books to read, could be new or old, fiction, non-fiction, whatever, just a book I won't be able to put down until I'm finished.

I suggest Artemis Fowl. It may seem a bit childish, but its pretty good

Out of the Silent Planet by C S Lewis is a good place to start. It is the beginning of a trilogy, with Perelandra and That Hideous Strength.

If you like good hard scifi that's not too inaccessible in the language department try Ring by Stephen Baxter. Pretty much anything in the Xeelee sequence is fantastic. Vacuum Diagrams is a great place to start if you just like a collection of short stories.

The sword handle on the cover is shaped like a phallus. Pretty gay.
