I was just wondering how people go about paragraphing. I'm sure there are rules and what-not that apply, but it seems that everyone does it differently. I basically just do whatever comes naturally: I think I start a new paragraph whenever there is a major change in thought, or subject etc. Or if another character starts speaking or something. I think this is a fairly common way of doing it. But in the last book I read, prey -- I forgot the author's name; he wrote jurrasic park -- He would sometimes have an entire conversation in one paragraph... it just struck me as odd. So... are there rules and what-not that apply to paragraphing? Or is it just a kind of stylistic/personal choice? Thanks. EDIT: I just relised this might belong in the SPAG section. Feel free to move it =].
