      For the Personal Writing in Paper 1 it depends on what what form of writing you choose.

      Debate Writing is usually 2.5-3 A4 pages

      Personal Essays are somewhat the shortest but has to be really unique and it can take a while to form good paragraphs without repeating yourself. This is usually 2-2.5 A4 pages

      Short Stories are what my teacher describes " The Reason why you will run out of time" . Only go for it if you are really good at them or you get lucky and the story title is near enough something you practiced. These can range from 3-5 A4 pages
