Dot Dot Dot

Perhaps some of you have noticed that I tend to overuse ellipses in my posts. It is a vice I admit to freely and I hope that my readers will indulge me in this bad habit.

I think that in some ways the ellipses symbolize my blog. I don't chew everything up and put it in your mouth to swallow. I hope to draw out the readers into a conversation, to let them pick up things that are hinted at rather than shouted at them. To follow the links...

The tagline for used to be "an exercise in abuse of ellipsis" among other things.

I do it to excess, but creative and good use of words and punctuation help infer voicing and inflection, more to the point emotion.

Don't feel bad.
