I'm currently writing a novel and have a portion in my chapter where a character goes over a key memory in his past. It cuts the actual scene taking place in half. I was thinking about simply using whitespace, but I'm not sure if a section sign § would be better placed, or if it doesn't matter at all. Basically, I'm wondering if whitespace and § are interchangeable.

    They’re not interchangeable (this§doesn’t§work§well), but you can use pretty much any design element as section breaks in works of fiction.

    I’m voting to close this question because it isn’t about language.
