    Get rid of all the line spaces - you must be using them way too frequently if 676 words have taken up 49 lines.... unless they are extremely long words...

    If you have spaces between paragraphs then get rid of them.

    Please don't scrap spaces between paragraphs - you'll make your PS horribly unreadable.

    You should be able to tighten it up to shorten the content down.
