If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know I love ellipses. They are the perfect piece of punctuation for when you want a thought to trail off and just hang there. And I often want that effect.
I find I have to go through my manuscripts with a fine toothed comb to weed out rampant ellipses abuse. And I still find there are a lot in the finished product. Sigh....
I just noticed I've hit 200 followers here, so I guess there are a bunch of people who don't mind my flagrant overuse of ellipses. Thanks everyone! I can't believe I have 200 people interested enough to read these rambles.
So, tell me, is there anything you use way too much in your work? Have you tried to train yourself out of it? Did it work?
