Dreadful Countdown

Your protagonist receives a mysterious, suspense-filled warning counting down to a catastrophic event.

This involves building a narrative where there’s an impending doom, and time is ticking away– the stakes are high. Each ‘ticking’ moment should intensify the suspense. How does the countdown clock affect your protagonist? What are the choices they must make, and what will they sacrifice? This requires a bit of tension, foreboding, and sense of urgency to keep your readers hook wondering about the impending catastrophe.
