As I gotten older, time seems to move faster. It's hard to describe why it feels faster when it isn't going any faster. Are you in the same boat? What about your characters?
Do they feel there isn't enough time to complete everything? Or do they have all the time in the world to complete the task in hand? Depending on the answer, you can create a hair-raising experience for your characters.
Remember time is important to our everyday lives, so it need to shows up in your novel as well.
