\parskip

\parskip is the extra vertical space inserted before a paragraph. It has a natural length of zero but should be a rubber length so that it may be stretched in a flushbottom environment.

To increase \parskip to skip a line between paragraphs one could use

    \addtolength{\parskip}{\baselineskip}
