How many spaces should you put between paragraphs?

Should I only press enter once to start a new paragraph and indent. Or press enter twice and not indent? I’m not sure what is the proper method. I do want to take up more space because I still have five more pages to write. Hah! But I don’t want to do that if it’s wrong, plus it will be even more obvious that I am doing that to take up space. Thank you in advance!

  • there should be one empty line between each paragraph.

    cheat like my students. they just make the margins one space

    narrower on each side, and this reduces the number of characters

    on a page. if it is done carefully and judiciously it will not be noticed.

    However, you could also just write a couple of more sentences and

    then you would not have to worry about how much space is used.

    whatever method you use, content and quality are much more important

    than quantity.
