I just started writing my upcoming fantasy, and at around three chapters in, I find myself asking if I am moving things too fast. So far I've written roughly 15 pages and introduced the character, his friends and family, all the main characters and practically everyone the reader is ever going to need to know about. I'm building up to a major event that will ultimately decide the fate of the main character and is an important part of my plot, and somehow I feel like the build up hasn't been as even as I'd liked. I originally estimated this big event would take place roughly 80-100 pages in, now I am faced with the prospect of it happening at around page 30, and I am increasingly worried that things might become a bit too fast paced for my liking. I don't want to draw it out and make it boringly long, but at the same time I don't want this event to happen after merely 40 pages- any suggestions on how to lessen the pace and bring the story's speed down a notch?
