Give us your Tension

We Electric Spec editors have started working on the next fabulous issue (Coming to a computer near you on May 31, 2010!), which means we're reading slush.

I read an interesting blog entry last week by Jennifer R. Hubbard: Tension: Desire and Obstacles in which she states tension is desire balanced by obstacles. Nice take.
Stories definitely need to have some tension to make it into our hold-for-voting file. So, give us your tension. Let us publish it in our ezine. :)

Anyone got any other good definitions of tension?

The unofficial submissions deadline for the next issue is April 15, 2010.

I once had a screenwriting teacher define conflict as:

Your character loves their cat, but the cat is stuck in a tree.

And tension as:

There's also a bear in the tree that likes to eat cats.

Not really a definition, but I thought the example might help out. :)
