    Well, I can do a short write-up of an explanation if you like. I did major in English Lit, so I'm confident that I could provide a simple explanation.

    Where would I post/send my write-up for your approval?

    I also was an English Lit major in college, and I spent 20 years as an editor/proofreader/typesetter, so I'd be happy to help with something original or a collaboration. As you please.

    Degree in Creative Writing here. I assume you mean something like "Avoiding the Text Wall: Why It's Okay to Use the Enter Key From Time to Time"?

    Generally, one should start a new paragraph when one of the following happens;

    • You move onto a new topic.
    • You make a different point.
    • You start talking to a different forum user.
    • After about 80-100 words, the reader needs some sort of break or pause to digest what has been said. It is therefore a good idea to start a new paragraph even if the following paragraph continues to talk about the same topic as the previous one.


    But as a hard and fast rule; keep one idea to one paragraph and you won't go far wrong.

    A writeup on concise communication would probably serve us better.

    well their are lots of different reasons to start a new paragraph you should always start a new one if you are trying to say something different then what you were telling people when you started writing but are now explaining something new that wasn't previously discussed in the first sentence and or paragraph that began you're thread...Additionally you should start a new paragrapgh not only for the reasons mentioned previously before but if your thread becomes to long it will and may start to begin to be a WALL OF TEXT that people don't like to read or do not have the discipline to read you're WALL OF TEXT so that interest is lost and the whole exercise of writing what you wrote to begin with is "lost in the sauce" is how you would express it... Nextly, if you're opinion on what you wrote has changed since the start of the first paragraph (Paragraph 1 or Paragrapgh, The First) then you should and need to start a new paragraph to reflect you're new stances or opinions in an appropriate manner or to defend the ideas of said "Paragraph the First" against "haters" that are on the board or against people (s) that use terms like "strawman" (WTF?)...also, it would behoove you to begin a new paragraph for "ease of use" tendencies that enable readers and fellow boardmembers to absorb the ideas encapsulated in "paragraph 1" or subsequent paragraphs as well (the second, the third) instead of having to hold their thoughts until the end of the WALL OF TEXT...i hope this helps you all and if you want to make it a sticky i can't blame you piece out!

    Yes and don't forget the people who mix up "there," "their," "they're," "piece," "peace," "your" and "you're"
    A paragraph goes a long way in helping the "haters" ignore the assumption of stupidity in a wall of text.
