I am having a hard time with the ellipsis. When I enter dot dot dot in Microsoft Word, it automatically makes the spaces between each dot a little longer than they would normally be.
However, in so many books I have read or am reading, the length of the spaces goes beyond what Word automatically creates.
It seems like in many novels, the punctuation is:
- Space DOT Space DOT Space DOT Space
- Space DOT DOT DOT Space
In some books I see things like:
A: "Don't think I don't want you...or don't care."
In others I see:
B: "Don't think I don't want you... or don't care."
In yet others I see:
C: "Don't think I don't want you . . . or don't care."
Does anyone have any thoughts on whether option A or B or C is better for a novel that will be self-published on Kindle for example? I see so many different versions that I'm not sure which is best at this point!
