I can probably field that question, Anthony, as it's come up in the past, and the answer is likely the same as it was then. You'll need to meet either a 750- or 1500-word limit...not something in between (unless it has the potential for being paired with other short articles to reach something more in line with a 750- or 1500-word article...e.g., a group of magic items, feats, or even monsters which can be written by multiple authors contributing to the final word count).
But, for fiction, you probably should go back to the drawing board. Add a scene which further enhances the story. Or, trim it back to 750 words. Your choice. And, ultimately, it's something you need to get used to as it's an integral part of writing to spec for a publisher.
