In fiction, tension isn’t about clenching your fists or gritting your teeth — or stating that your protagonist is doing so.
It’s about making your readers wonder and making them want to know what happens next.
These moments of tension don't have to all be huge, though; you'll need to make them smaller in order to feasibly fit one on every single page of your book.
