Narrative Tension - This is the continue article from Creation Narrative Tension in Novel (Part 1) 
Internally and externally?

If a character does not block, there is no drama surrounding the advance of history. There is no reason why a person feel any tension, or hearing a story to feel the tension on a character getting what they want.

Another way to generate stress is to begin a story with a character wrestling with a dilemma (which may be internal or external, mainly). If an event of the plot forces the character to act to resolve his dilemma, the story begins with a question - what will make the character - and moves toward an answer to that question.

If this step resolves the original dilemma to Creation Narrative Tension, but creates a new problem, which requires a larger step, the story moves on.

Because the resolution reached, the character of the story must go through a change in sentiment.

If a character does not go through a change in sensation (or understanding), have not been affected. If there is nothing in a scene from the impacts of a character can be hard to what happens to the impact on the audience. The exception, of course, is that the narrator wants a character to remember while doing something that acts on the public.

When a character is facing a bigger, more difficult problem, a state must have new, different feelings.

That feeling can be incorporated into an action (a character shouts, or lashes out, or babble, etc.) or can be expressed through dialogue.

This simple process is evident in the books of Harry Potter. When done right (Harry's world is full of dilemmas in progress), the effect is to pull the audience forward.

Dilemmas in Harry's world has many faces - Harry wants to go somewhere with his friends but can not because it is in danger - Harry has many powers, but if used to defend the Dursleys, who have power to take the risk .

Many stories I have read the action, things happen and things are resolved, but the deeper question is how the action compelling.

Just to clarify this, a character can be in conflict with itself and something external to them. In The Hunt for Red October, Ramius has boiled his life the way the Communists treated their homeland. It is only with the death of his wife who can act to solve this sense, punishing the communist party (while his wife was alive, he could not act without jeopardizing his). Ramius To further boost over the edge, he blames the Communists for the death of his wife due to a failed surgery.

Once the internal pressure is set (and sometimes referred to), the story unfolds mostly as Ramius must outwit the forces arrayed against him. However, the transfer of this internal tension at the hearing has already taken place.

Understanding how the popular stories and storytellers to create narrative tension can be a teaching tool.
