    Take out obvious filler words (furthermore, in addition to this).

    Then go through a sentence at a time and try removing each word from the sentence to see if it still makes sense.

    For example in your post above "I've finally finished my PS and copied and pasted it onto my application but apparently its 760 characters too long!" would get across the same message without "finally" and "and pasted it onto my application" and "apparently".
