For example, if you are drawing the ionic compound NaCl, Na will have no dots around it because it lost its valence electron indicated by the +1 charge and chlorine will have 8 dots around it because it pulled the electron from Na to itself, indicated by the charge 1-. Then you would draw them separately and put a bracket around each of them instead of a line because a line represents the sharing of electron and ionic compound does not share electron.
