Ellipsalot

Getting back into the swing of things is something I do not do well. I'm lazy.  There, I've admitted it.  Anyway, between dabbling with the Christmas decor, which remains, getting back into school, and making little quick forays into friends' blogs and Facebooks, I notice and become impatient with a little writing quirk of mine.

I write using a lot of ellipses.  I like to leave those dot dot dots at the ends of sentences, especially blog and Facebook comments.  I've deleted several of these in the last few days.  Actually, more than several.  Why do I overuse them?  Maybe I like to leave a way out...

...or maybe I just don't want to admit I have nothing else to say...

I trail off...

I have no picture to match this post...

Oh, you are too funny . . .


I use them a lot on my other blog, the one where I put my cards, because I consider them an open door. Example:

Here is the sketc . . . (pic) And here is my take on the sketch . . . (pic)

Etc, etc, etc. Just consider them an open door, a way for others to use their imagination and come up with what you would be saying! That's it, you are encouraging creativity and imagination! :o) Becky

I use them a ton too. It's just a way to add some personality!
