I see it all the time.
A perfectly good scene, shoehorned into just three or four monolithic paragraphs. Or a whole dialogue poured into a single huge paragraph, flat and solid as a concrete sidewalk.
Sometimes a writer will err in the opposite direction, smashing a coherent paragraph into smaller shards just to add more "white space" to the page.
No one remembers the list of rules for where paragraph breaks ought to go (although you'll see such a list on Pinterest now and then). So rather than posting another such list, I've tried my hand at making a comic strip to illustrate it!
Here it is. This is my first attempt to use Pixton. Let me know what you think of it!
The comic strip is missing. Ay chance of adding it again?

I tried a few months ago and did not succeed! I should have taken a screenshot of it. *sigh*
I don’t think Pixton is doing very well. It looks like the company changed ownership and somehow the old links and old embed code don’t seem to work anymore.
Anyway, my strip was mildly funny and tried to offer an insight about the writing life. Nothing earthshaking.
(I am sad to have lost it, though.)
