This is an extract of a short story I'm writing. Sometimes I get confused about when to start a new paragraph and when to start a new "scene." So I would like to know if I'm doing it properly here (and how to do it properly in the future).
It was almost midnight and Adele was lying on bed, staring at the ceiling in the darkness. She was tired, but for some reason, she couldn't sleep. After some minutes, she got out of bed, walked towards the window, and opened it. A strong breeze entered, filling the room with the smell of the sea. She stood there, still, watching the rocks being hit by the waves.
A minute or two passed when she spotted something down in the beach. At first she couldn't make out the shape, but after looking at it keenly, she realized that it was a kid. He was standing on one of the rocks, gazing at the moon.
(New scene starts)
Adele woke up at ten thirty in the morning. She brushed her teeth, took a shower, and went downstairs. There was no one in the dinning room, so she decided to make herself a sandwich and a coffee.
After finishing her breakfast, she went outside to take some fresh air. She went to the beach, which now looked as empty as a desert. She sat on the sand, and gazed at the sea. There were still enormous waves that looked like skyscrapers. How it would be to be swallowed by one them, Adele wondered.
She spent the rest of the day alone, waiting for someone to come back. But no one did.
(New scene starts)
It was 11:30 a.m. Adele was in her room, staring out the window. She was waiting for the kid to appear again. Maybe he is somehow connected with what had happened, she thought. She stayed in the same position for a while, eyes focused in the rocks. The kid appeared thirty minutes later.
She walked downstairs, passed through the dinning room, and got out of the inn.
When she reached the beach, she saw the kid standing in the same place as before. She walked towards the little boy, until she found herself standing right next to him. After examining him for a few seconds, she realized that he was wearing a mask. A Japanese mask.
