When I’m in the planning stages, I plan for 1500 word scenes. When I’m done writing them, I end up with a variable amount- anywhere from 1000 words to 5000 words. It just depends on what the scene requires. That’s just the first draft.

When I’m editing (and after it’s complete), I don’t worry about how many words are in each scene.
