I am in the middle of writing a story, I feel like my scene is too long.  Right now it's abut 1 page long.  Does anyone how long the average scene should be?

I'm still learning how to write, but I would think the scene needs to be as long as it needs to be to advance the story, or even just provide exposition.  I.E there is no such thing as an average length for a scene.  Or maybe I'm wrong  ;D

This. I've had scenes as small as 500 words and longer than 5,000. A scene is as long as it needs to be.
