Ultimately, I manually re-typed my entire writing sample from my (extensively corrected) hard copy, which was the only way I could guarantee (to my own psychological satisfaction) that every sentence was solid. It turns out that physically re-typing something is an excellent way to pinpoint where the manuscript is bloated by absurd assumptions and meaningless rhetoric and other bad things of which I had an abundance.

Dear Internet,

I'm in the process of giving away a portion of my personal library. If you'd like any of the books I'm unloading, speak up and I'll mail it off to you. For free.

Love,
Me
