I love watching shows and reading books that involve a lot of conflict, tension, and suspense.
“I love reading books where nothing happens and the characters just stand around doing nothing.” Said No One Ever
Likewise, as a writer I want to make sure that I give my readers what they want and screaming for more.

“Our instinct as human beings is to provide answers, to ease tension. As writers our job is the opposite, to create tension and not dispel it immediately.”
