Note: This is for manuscript purposes because I'd like to format this the way a publisher expects to receive it. So typically you find breaks internal to a chapter like this. * * * And I understand that they're a means of changing scenes or denoting the passage of time, but what about if a given passage contains several quick changes to different scenes? I think putting scene breaks in between so few paragraphs would look kind of ugly, but I'm not sure what the arrangement is as far as grammatical correctness goes. Would a double-space between paragraphs work? Is that even allowed, professionally? On that note, how would you work with rapidly switching between two or three scenes taking place simultaneously? The first example that comes to mind is the last action sequences of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and The Return of the Jedi. There were four and three different scenes going on at the same time there and I doubt each cut would have been worth a chapter each in book form. Edit: It's supposed to be the same character in all three scenes being grilled by different antagonists. Film-wise you'd see the MC standing in the same position as the antag. and environment changed around them with no smooth transition. I use indentations in Word, but it's just too much trouble to use them here (it is possible to centre text in the advanced posting options). I seem to have worked something out for the meantime, but further advice is welcome.
