Just to be clear, I'm not asking about word counts. I'm asking how long a YA novel usually is in terms of days in the book. I've worked out the major scenes of the book, and when putting them together I'm just not sure whether a certain two/three fairly key scenes should happen on the same day, or they should be fairly separated. I'm worried that a) If they happen on the same day, the story will seem to move along too quickly. b) If they happen on different days, I'll need to add filler scenes of what happens say in the afternoon and evening (if the key scene happens in the morning or so) which will slow the book down. One possibility is a subplot. But I have no idea how I can incorporate one into my book so far, and with the book being in the POV of only the protagonist (and with no intention for this to change), I don't know how I'd pull it off. Are there any ways to solve this/dos anyone know the actual length in days of a YA novel?
