My Achilles' heel during the writing process has always been pacing - not so much with the general flow and rhythm of a scene, but the speed at which my story unfolds; everything seems to happen too fast. One of the key scenes in my current WiP, for instance, was outlined to take place maybe a fifth of the way through the novel, but last night while writing I found myself setting up that very scene at the end of the second (very short) chapter. It's so frustrating, because despite having a strong sense of the story's pace in my head, I can't transfer it effectively during writing. I'm hoping beyond all hope that my chapters will be fleshed out during re-writes, which should help slow the pacing between key scenes and plot points, but I fear at this rate I'll have finished the damn thing in 30,000 words. And before anyone suggests it, this isn't a case of me having a short story rather than a novel. I've read enough to know that my story/plot is solid enough to be written as a novel. Any tips or advice for slowing the pace, without using cheap filler, would be appreciated.
