Ellipsis...

How do they help us?

Examples...

1) Jamie waited on her dad to pick her up from school...but he never showed.

2)Emma waits on her mom to take her to dinner...but then she forgot her phone.

3)Lousy and were on their way home...then the car came to a sudden stop.


How ellipsis work...

Supposed we would quote " The boy ran towards the playground but then it started to rain."



"The boy ran towards the playground...but then it started to rain"


The new sentence still makes sense, but the use of ellipsis mark still makes sense, but the ellipsis mark shares the reader that somethng is missing.
