I'm 100,000 words into my story and I've got a nagging feeling it's too slow. The story takes place several years after the country was hit by drought and how people are still suffering from its effects. The maincharacter is a seventeen year old girl who was rescued from a lap dancing club and raised by a woman who sheltered her from the world. The main part of the story is about how the girl breaks free and interacts with the people she meets bringing people together.

Its cracking me up! I've been working on it for the best part two years and seem to be getting nowhere. Any help would be gratefully received. :)
