This might be a stupid question but I am trying to write a small novel, and my structure just doesn't seem right. The text just flows continuously until the end of the chapter (with dialog being typed on their own lines).
Do I need to make use of paragraphs, and if so:
- Do I just write start a new paragraph after a certain number of lines (if so how many lines would constitute a paragraph)?
- Do I just use indentation at the start of a particular line to mark a new paragraph? I have seen in some novels, the text is structured like I described mine except after a certain number of lines there's an indentation at the start of a line.
