Hi, just wondering if there's a hard and fast rule for the use of paragraphs. When I'm reading a novel the use of paragraphs seem so natural that I don't even notice them, but when I'm writing it's a different story and I'm constantly stalling to ask myself whether what I'm about to write should be a new paragraph or not. I thought the general rule of thumb was that a new subject meant a new paragraph, but studying novels has told me this clearly isn't the case. Any tips that would help me know when I need to start a new paragraph would be most welcome. Thanks in advance.
