Drama Punctuation

a: Ellipsis ~
b: a spotlight

What: "If the colon is like a spotlight, the ellipsis is like a drum roll, preparing the reader to expect something important and worth waiting for. Ellipses are used to signify a pause in one's speech, and readers will most likely imagine a dramatic pause when a series of dots is encountered."
