Paragraphs

A paragraph is a block of text with one or more blank lines between them.

Syntax

Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.
Lo. Lee. Ta.

This would output:

Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth.

Lo. Lee. Ta.

Line breaks in pargraphs can be created with double newlines or using a \ symbol.

Best Practices

Make sure to not add tabs or spaces in front of the paragraph text, because they will create unwanted indentation.
