comment What is a beat?
One Monkey, I can't follow the Macbeth example at all, so I'm ignoring it. In the novel section: If a beat sets a mood, then one scene can have just one beat, as (I'm guessing) the mood stays roughly the same for each scene?

comment What to do if I can't meet my chapter word count?
@Lauren, when plotting, I divide my story into scenes, and put those scenes into chapters. And then I set a word count target for each. This is to know how long my book will be- as usually they always end up short

Thanks @Kate, but you are talking about building tension, while my question is how to give the readers breathing space after a scene of tension.
