Finally the answer...

...if you've been reading my posts at all, you'll notice the absurd number of ellipses I use.

On my blog is fine, but when I'm writing, I've never been certain of the precise grammar rules for ellipses and all the different kinds of dashes.

So, I was delighted to find this article today.

I have definitely bookmarked it for future editing purposes ;), if I can only find out the correct grammar for formatting a stutter, I'd be golden ;)


  1. oh my gosh, I also love using ellipses in my writing. Glad I'm not alone!

  2. Use of ellipses has a bad rap. I happen to like the little suckers.

    Thanks for the link. I copied and pasted the post onto a Word doc for future reference.

  3. Heh. I always remove them from my writing (and do tend to use the dash instead) since they feel like something that belongs in comic books more than novels.


Type me out a line of Shakespeare or a line of nonsense. Dumb-blonde-jokes & Irish jokes will make me laugh myself silly :)
