Let us learn to write a story with suspense.

Words that help you create suspense: suddenly, just then, in that moment, all of a sudden, silently, in alarm, scared, from the shadows, dark, unexpectedly etc.

Let us use these words to write a paragraph on “A day in the forest”

Suddenly in a distance, I noticed some paws on the mud. My head turned red with fear and I silently stepped back. Just then, I saw a big brown furry animal with green eyes coming out of the shadows. In that moment, I didn't know what I had to do. I screamed and ran. All of a sudden, I heard a howl behind me. I turned to see two wolves chasing me.

Now, why don’t you try to write a story with suspense?
