Write a chase scene that varies in pace; moments of high-speed pursuit interspersed with quieter, tenser moments.
Use sentence length and structure to influence the pacing. Short sentences for speed, longer ones for slower moments.
Melody; A Murder Mystery
I reviewed the past week, slowly, eyes watering over the facts. I was confused, hurt, tired… I ached inside and out. The town had begun to fall apart…
The dead girl’s neckless was in my boyfriend’s hand. He was crying; long, hard sobs as his fingers ran over the locket.
The school creep, Jenson, cut her eyes out of the yearbooks, stalked her behind the bleachers and stole her underwear. They wer...

“Gallian Most Wanted
Locklir and Keyna
Known as Lock and Key
Wanted for breaking and entering, thievery, and assault
They are armed and pose a threat. Do not approach.”
Key stares at the wanted poster with a smirk. She turns to her twin brother, “You think we’re dangerous? Pose a threat?”
He snickers at the phrasing. “...
Far From Here
I cursed as the sleeve of my jacket got caught on the jagged edge of a metal fence, forcing me to a complete stop. As soon as I dislodged myself from its grip I started off again picking up my speed until I could no longer hear anything but the sound of my feet thundering against the pavement.
I don’t know how long I’d been running, only that I had to, according to Emory. He was about 200 yards ...

The pain in his side seared but he ignored the pain and kept walking before he got to the entrance he collapsed onto the sand.
The weight of his gear made it worse as he tried to get up he couldn’t,before he could do anything.
He noticed a figure standing over him

Vinimars: God Of Deceit
Before you read: This is a scene I have kinda had planned for my future book but I am fitting it to the prompt as well. Enjoy!
Nicolai found himself staring into the white maze that was the silky exterior of a giant cocoon. The boy could not seem to find the man who he heard speak. He almost could have sworn it was his father, but mother had pounded the fact that dead men tell...
The Hunter And The Hunted…
Why did they always run…?
“Damn it, Larry.” Stskai sighed as she watched the lowlife fledgling bolt through the warehouse door. All he had to do was answer one simple question: “Who’s running the show, Larry?” But no, Larry had to run… and that meant that she’d have to chase him. That was her least favorite thing. She preferred her prey to be lured in, mesmerized, and stricken down before they ev...
He darts towards his prey,
A single woman scared to lose,
Which he intends to take today,
But his pace more steady,
Her but not her treasure.
He made her labor and labor,
Labor until her exhaustion shut her body down.
He made her part with time,
and body and mind to make what he owned,
So that she would not have time to make what she owns,
He would own what...
Cars Don’t Work Against The Supernatural
“Ethan-“ Akiva grunted out, voice tight and limbs trembling. Her pupils were blown wide, blacking out the flame-red eyes she begun to sport after the turn, and she couldn’t stop staring at Clementine. Her lips quivered, upturning just enough for the unnatural pointed canines to peek from their hiding spot. “Get. H- Her. Out of here.”
Just as Ethan hastily reached out for Clementine’s arm, Akiva s...
Be quiet be still
The monster hunts at night
Running jumping tripping
It thunders after
The shadows scape the ground
Clawing at their prey
Quiet be quiet
The monster prowls about
Its eyes deep pits
The mist will give you away
Your heartbeat will give you away
Can you get away
Run through the woods
Monsters hunt at night
Be still not
