Myself, I’m rather fond of … you know, the odd elliptical expression. I tend to reserve the em dash — conventionally enough — to “dash off” parenthetical clauses. Maybe that’s one reason why — I know I’m going to get hell for this — Emily Dickinson has never been one of my favourite poets.

Writer of (mainly short) fiction, criticism/discussion and other stuff; I discovered in my late 50s that I’m aphantasic https://www.artkavanagh.ie
