Too Long???
« on: August 04, 2005, 05:43:55 PM »
Well I sat down and started writing my PS today and the words flowed like water. I wrote an amazing PS... problem is it turned out 3 full pages double spaced. I went through and there really is nothing I can take out without ruining the impact of the peice. What should I do? Will schools really care that its a page over the norm? Any advice would help. Thanks!

I don't know about how the schools will feel, but I suggest you take another look and see if you can't trim it a bit. It will be challenging but you might end up with a stronger piece as a result.

If you PM me a copy, I'll try to whittle it down. (An objective eye always does better when trimming...)

If you PM me a copy of it, too, I'd be happy to see if I can identify parts where you could cut it down. I had considered going into publishing for awhile (copyediting and proofreading type of stuff), so I have a pretty good eye for this stuff.  Just send it along and I'd be happy to take a look!
