Short Version of Title 2 Title (centered) The text of your document should begin on the first line (double-spaced**) after your title. You should indent the first line of text in each paragraph of the body of the document. More text here more text here more text here. More text here more text here more text here.

When you want to insert a short quotation, you just include it as part of the current line. For instance, one of my favorite quotes by C. S. Lewis (1984) is from his book Till We Have Faces . It goes, “Why should your heart not dance?” (p. 96). After quoting something, you need to use a citation. If you have already mentioned the author in your text, then you only need to use the year of publication (and the page number when quoting something directly). If you haven’t mentioned the author in text, or have talked about other things more recently so that it could be confusing, then include the author’s last name in the citation. For instance, I like this quote as well, “I do not think that all who choose wrong roads perish; but their rescue consists in being put back on the right road” (Lewis, 1963, p. 6).
