I have found that I am particularly fond of ellipses when used in a communicative fashion as such… (Of course, I tend to enjoy my parenthetical statements as well.)
Commas are useful, but a bit of a waste at the same time when used none-to-sparingly.
Periods are merely functional.
Semi colons are cool; the appropriate uses for which are minimal, however.
As I sit back and re-read the above, I am struck by the idea that I write in the same voice as I speak. Or is it: “I speak like I write”? Chicken… Egg…?
