    Thanks, Allan - for pointing out my typing error - your comments about the rest of the post would have been more intereting though. xxx

    Michael, [as per your comment on prose writing] I have worked in the journalistic field for a time (until this month in fact - but got damn tired of the frantic and what seemed the voyeuristic aspects of documenting death - not designed for that) and so your comment about prose and using that journalistic style is noted. It hasn't helped me up to now, but then I wasn't using the 'media nodule' of my brain when in creative writing mode. I will try it out on my prose and see.. if I fall into a parsimonious hole I can't get out of you will give me a hand won't you.. wink, Sxx

    I like 'menance' as a Plath word, Linda. Evokes men, menace and penance. Spot on.

    Thanks anyway, Mark. I know you have been interested in Sylvia Plath lately, did you know that one of her big influences was, Theodore Roethke? Ted Hughes, said that in 1959 a turning point was reached in her poetry when she discovered him. She 'realized how he could help her'. She certainly picked up his something -nasty-in-the-greenhouse manner; she, too, could find the creepiness in things. In November of that year she wrote'Mushrooms' -which was filled with menance.
