I really have no idea! 🙂
Okay, I’ve returned, having completed a little investigation on my WIP. Not surprisingly, my scenes are well above 1600. In fact, in the seven I reviewed, the shortest was about 1600. My longest topped out a little over 3000.
Usually my rewrites don’t change the numbers by any huge degree. It’s normally a matter of switching out words or clarifying different bits and pieces. It’s either that, or I end up scrapping the whole scene because I realized it was totally unnecessary.
