I sure do hope I have this in the right thread, but can anyone help me with how I should set up my stories? I usually double-space, but I noticed a lot of people here don't but use shorter paragraphs, and that's how I wrote Ariza Overtaken on here, and I prefer that. The reason I'm asking is because my creative writing teacher told me when you enter a story into a contest or get it published, double-spacing is crucial. How do you guys write your stories? Should I continue to double-space or write it how I prefer?
