Advice needed! I had a scene written, where fragments were separated by blank lines to indicate passage of time. I also worked it so that each section could be read as connected to the previous, even though in reality the two parts of a sentence referred to different things. Some people said this was confusing, so I need some more feedback. I don't want to use a style that pulls people out of the story.
I just wondered which of the options below people preferred, or found easiest to read? Let me know by email or in the comments (or via Facebook).
Note that it is only the transitions between sections that I am talking about (and those transitions are the only thing I changed between the three options). No need to read the whole thing three times!
