This is a pet peeve of mine. I find ellipses so terribly misapplied in work by Indies. Drives me nutz.

  3. I over use the ellipsis. Perhaps because my train of thought is frequently interrupted. Or missing.

  5. Hmmm...I am guessing you should probably just skip over all of mine as I have a very bad habit of using them to pause my overloaded brain long enough to finish a sentence. LOL!

  6. I used to use them all the time, I never even knew there was a name for it. Now I know better and try not to use them so much.
