    I just don't know what to take out, it's 800 words which is far too much.

    Rather than taking things out, you can just reword your sentences to shorten it.
    Not much help telling us its too long unless we know what youve written about so we can say what else is unnecessary

    And remember, its not about how many words you ahbve, its how many lines you take up. Look at paragraphs which has few words in the last lines, try to shorten it so that you effectively and fully use every single line
