The ticking clock...

Time constraints in fiction are not new. The idea tht the pace of the story is controlled by the need to accomplish the character's goals within the time frame given. This control of environment can be used to:

show the passage of time by using a known event... such as a holiday or tradition.
increase the pacing of the story. As the time on the clock decreases and the adrenahline factors kick in.

Use a ticking clock to your advantage.
