So normally your first paragraph would look something like this. It has no indent untill the next paragraph. Like this. So then if you were to have a space to indicate a time or place jump you would need to have another indent free paragraph. like this. But what happens if the first paragraph is dialouge (which is usually indented) "Do I leave it indent free?" I ask him. "Not sure, what is the other way of doing it?" he asked. I took a while to think about it. "I guess it could be done like this." I said the next day."why not ask the people on the writing forum, they should know" he said ----- Quite hard to format properly on a forum.
