Thanks kt6500. Will make change to "wept." Re: "Kerfuffle"--I checked etymology of word and it dates back to 16 th Century Scottish origins as "curfuffle." Word used

Thanks KT6500. Definitely too long. I'm presently contemplating breaking up most of my chapters. Yes, "Gallimaufry" is a strange word not used very often. Appreciate your views.

No worry, Don. If it were truthful, your wife would probably kill you. Glad to see anything from you -- even a shout.

If I wrote a memoir of my childhood I'd have to go into Witness Protection.

You're welcome, Mike. Cant relate to you're "Funny" tho since i neber mist misteaks in my stuf.

Thanks Alex. Funny how obvious my error in title was. Funny how writers can sometimes miss blatant mistakes. I appreciate your comments--you are the first person to critique my novel!

An indent shows there is a new paragraph. The first sentence in a chapter or scene doesn't need that.
AlexScribe October 18 2018 11:25:55
You're right, Don. 20 of my English langauage fictions, multi genres, all US: 4 with & 16 without initial indents. Maybe CAN & UK more consistent.
Don Roble October 17 2018 17:45:48
In fiction, there is no space between paragraphs unless the focus changes. Non-fiction is different.
Don Roble October 17 2018 17:44:22
In fiction the first paragraph is never indented.
AlexScribe October 13 2018 07:23:15
As I did here, I sometimes omit the indent on para 1 of story/chapter as some books do. No special rhyme or reason as to when. Sorry for the confusion. V5 full speed ahead.
