I've run into a point in my story where one of the characters has this giant monologue. I wanted to separate the monologue into two paragraphs to make it easier to read and to add an implied pause in the talking. How do you guys normally handle this? Do you just put the blocks of dialogue next to each other like you would normally? It seems really weird to me and might confuse the reader unless I added some kind of indication that it was the same person talking again. Do you add a line of non-dialogue to help split the two giant paragraphs up better (something I would rather avoid doing unless it's truly the best way to go about it)? I've heard of some authors removing the ending quote mark and that implies that it's the same block of dialogue in a separate paragraph... but that just seems too weird to me.
