Verbose Woe

My application for a teaching residency program is complete except for the essay questions and brief video.  I have a lot written for all three, but the problem is that each essay is supposed to be 500 words, and one essay is over 700 words and the other is over 1,000… So editing these essays down is painful!  The video script I’ve been working on is likely to be longer than the two minute limit as well.  I may not often say much, but when I do I always end up having too much to say.  The fact that my editing process usually ends up making my writing more detailed rather than more concise only furthers my aggravation.
