I love and constantly use and misuse the ellipse. Well maybe I donâ€™t misuse it as bad as I think. Judi, please chime in. According to most of the online sources I have checked, ellipses are meant to convey missing words or incomplete sentences.
This is how my mind works. Especially when I am blogging. Ideas are competing at a furious pace to be expressed. I am too inadequate of a writer to convey everything that I am thinkingâ€¦like just there. I want to say something, but the thoughts are not in a coherent stream, so I leave out much of what I am thinking. No other punctuation comes close to expressing this problem.
So until I become a better writer, I will continue to use my friend the ellipse.
Which reminds meâ€¦oh, nevermind.
