I know the rule is that each paragraph needs to be about one character, and I get that, especially when I've been confused many times by books that didn't follow that rule. My confusion comes from the scenes where I have two characters semi-interacting and the character focus changes nearly every sentence or every couple of sentences. I'm not talking POV switches, just, for example, character actions. In this case it's the MC dragon watching the female human come out of her hiding place (a second time). This is the specific scene I'm struggling with right now, though I've run into this a few times before and I'd really like to know the correct way to handle it. (Bogre is the dragon term for humans. It stands for boney ogre.) The bogre peeked out the hole. So she hadn’t found the other one yet. Interesting. She slowly stepped out of the hole, watching his face for signs of movement. He forced back a chuckle. The last thing he wanted was to frighten her back into hiding. I don't know if He forced back a chuckle. The last . . . should be in a separate paragraph, or if it's fine the way it is. It kind of sounds off to me where it is, but the next sentence is going to be her doing something and it feels odd to have so many insanely short paragraphs without any of them being dialogue. It's a really fun scene, but when this kind of thing stumps me, it's really hard to stay focused because I have no idea how I've handled it previously in the book, so I don't know if I'm being consistent. I run into this problem with fight scenes, too, but those don't feel as off as calmer scenes.
