What makes you feel tense in a story?



I’m curious as to what really makes you guys feel anxious/agitated/tense in a story whether that’d be sense of danger, relationship dramas or just a technique that authors use such as cliffhangers. I’d really like to see you guys share your experience as this’ll give me some ideas for my story! Feel free to also include what makes you feel excited in a story.


I just hate how petty a character can be.


Sorry, I mean, what makes you feel nervous in a story. .


What makes me feel nervous is if the character is about to die


When the character does something really stupid and gets caught :woman_facepalming:t3:


a cliff hanger or when somethiing really bad happens and there is intenese music in the bg.
