How to cut down an essay by at least 700 words (Shakespeare)?
my Shakespeare essay is far too long (2700 words) and it is supposed to be 1500 ish! but my teacher said we can go a little bit over, just not completely overboard! so my aim is about 2000 words but im just not sure how to cut my essay down because I don’t know what to delete!!!! thanks (sorry about poor grammar etc im in a rush)

ANSWER
I think you need some kind of formula besides the one that I use; however, you are welcome to it, My method is to read through the whole documents and cut out the redundant sentences as you read. I sometimes have done seven readings and editing of my own work. It is a time consuming task but it worked for me. In all the writing that I have done, I got an award for an article I did entitled the Great Quake.

Another method of reducing the total volume of you essay. Is to remove every other sentence in the whole essay. If it is going to cannibalize your essay so that it become illogical, then don’t do it. Good luck.
