Here is the trick.
open the console.app and look in the log files for events marked as " com.apple.backupd " and look at what time machine is doing.
If it is doing a deep traversal of your disk, or verifying it's database, that can take a long time.
Golden advice is to let Time Machine finish what it started, even if it takes a very long time.
If you interrupt it, the next time it will take even longer. :-)

So have a look at those logs and see what happens in the background.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
