I’m happy you found your way here to the ellipses fields!
A little bit about the name and how it came to be:
Ellipses are my favorite punctuation. I love how earnestly they line themselves up, as if pointing off into the distance. And how they suggest a moment of pause. I also love all the various definitions of the word field, and how each one offers a particular window into a writing practice.
• an open land area free of woods and buildings
• the place where a battle is fought
• a large unbroken expanse (as of ice)
• an area or division of an activity, subject, or profession
• a space on which something is drawn or projected:
• the area visible through the lens of an optical instrument
• a region or space in which a given effect (as magnetism) exists
• a complex of forces that serve as causative agents in human behavior
• a particular area (as in a database) in which the same type of information is regularly recorded
A place for words. A daily practice. A showing up to what emerges.
