I'm desparately writing a short story for a creative writing class. I'm having problems with how to properly format/where to put the dialogue. I've seen in books that each new dialogue is separated from the actual paragraph. Is this the same for short stories?
Yes. Dialog is always separated into individual paragraphs, even if only one word is spoken:
"Oh, come on, Dad, do you really think what I did was that bad? You and Mom grew up in the 1960s, you experimented with drugs."
"No, we didn't."
"I've seen the photo albums. Those clothes had to have some sort of pharmaceutical explanation."
