From what I understand, a good general rule of thumb is to keep most scenes at around 1-3 pages.
But what if you have 3 scenes that are 2 pages each, but part of the same continuous action sequence?
For example, let's say the characters are in a grocery store.
In the first scene they are in the lunch buffet area.
In the second, they move to the checkout line.
In the third, they are outside the grocery store in the parking lot.
So although there are three master scene headings here, it feels like one giant scene. Any thoughts on how the "1-2" page scene length advice applies to this situation?
