Since we submit in plaintext, there is no spacing between paragraphs.

My question is, do I hard return TWICE in the submission form?
Or is one hard return sufficient?

My concern is that with only one hard return between paragraphs, it may be difficult to read. 

As of right now my submission looks like this (one hard return):

Words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words.
(New paragraph) words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words.
(New paragraph)  words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words.

Instead of (two hard returns):

Words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words.

(New paragraph) words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words.

(New paragraph)  words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words words.

I did two hard returns to create the blank line between each paragraph.

The spacing of the story will appear for the judges exactly how it appears in the submission form when you press submit. There are no rules regarding spacing, so you are welcome to have one or two spaces between paragraphs, though one space is a little more common. Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else. Thank you and good luck!
