I recently realized that the entire book I'm planning takes place over little more than a week, of which the heroine spends three days alone in a place where time flows a bit differently. Over the remaining 4-5 days she has to discover her magical heritage, learn about the magical world, awaken her powers, fall in love and defeat the villain. Granted, there is a certain sense of urgency, but I dunno, is it too brief? It's not that I couldn't drag it out further, but I don't want to make it seem like I'm stalling by stuffing the plot full of filler. I wouldn't even worry that much about it except for the "fall in love" thing - my two MCs don't have that much time to get to know each other, but then again I'm not sure how quickly teenagers normally fall in love either.
