A paragraph is a group of sentences talking about the same thing, part of an event, or idea.
Don't put an extra space between paragraphs:
the indent is enough.
☠When writing on the computer, always use the indent triangle to indent, NEVER the space or tab keys.
When you change what you’re talking about, start a new paragraph.
A paragraph always has at least two or more sentences, unless it is dialog.
A paragraph is rarely longer than a quarter of a page.
When to start a new paragraph:
• When you change what you’re talking about.
• When you introduce a new idea, character, setting, or event.
• When there’s a gap in time.
• When you change who is talking.
• When you want to emphasize something.
• When you want a mini-cliffhanger.
• If your paragraph is more than a quarter of a page, look for good places to break it up into smaller paragraphs.
