    I'm writing my PS right now and I'm massively confused.
    I have about 3990 characters, but when pasting it into the editor and make it so there are paragraphs (leaving one blank line between the paragraphs), then I have to shorten my PS which makes it only around 3700 characters!
    Can I just do paragraphs without leaving blank lines or how did you guys handle it?

    Ideally you would edit it to add in blank lines. I've never seen a PS that couldn't be improved by removing words in favour of making it easier to read (and making it less likely that important information didn't get missed).

    3,400-3,600 characters is about right for a well presented PS within the line limit.

    You've got until January to refine your PS. There's no need to rush in.
