I love reading about writing almost as much as I love writing.

Plot and Structure, by James Scott Bell, is the latest writing book I've read late into the night (am I the only one who thinks writing books are page turners?)

Stretching the tension is what I'm currently working on with my chapter book. Bell uses the movie, Psycho, as an example of how to stretch tension, specifically the scene where Vera Miles walks towards the house and the movie audience screams, "No, don't go in!"

I'm learning how to take one of my shorter scenes and stretch it to make more tension. Granted, my scenes are for children ages seven to ten, so whatever tension I come up with is going to be tame compared to a creepy movie. I don't think I could ever write something that would give me nightmares.

What about you? How do you create or stretch tension in your writing?
