I wrote the book.

As a child I read everything I could get my hands on. Little did I imagine I would ever write one of my own, let alone two.!

Now in my 70’s I’m working on 3 at the same time.

Today I found a note of how I found the time to write the Alphabet Book.

I did it, I’m doing it.

Pam Holland.

I write,

Waiting at the gate to get on a plane. There are a number of  Soldiers sitting quietly, and they appear to be reflective rather than animated.

On a plane, upgraded to first class, affords me more space to type, a pleasure and relaxed.

Yet another flight and  out of the handbag I produce my iPad. I work in silence, because I need the earphones to drown out the sound of the lady next to me chewing gum. She’s agitated and makes unusual movements for the full two hours, what’s she on?

Off the plane and laden with luggage, I wait for the Hilton shuttle. “15 minutes Maam”

At the mall of America in Ruby Tuesdays tucking into turkey and salad.

People walk by, laden with bags, talking to friends, interacting with children.

Waiting for the shuttle to take me back to the hotel after one heck of a day, Shuttle, plane, plane, shuttle, shopping, … Hotel shuttles pull up with regularity, people with bags a plenty wait in good spirits.

Quietly in the hotel room. Peace, privacy, cool and good music.

Breakfast in the hotel, I read the paper first. Then write.

Waiting for the shuttle to take me to the next shuttle !!!!!!!

Grab a coffee at Starbucks, at the airport, there is a free table, people are arriving picking up luggage and the throng seems to be constantly moving. I write amongst the movement.

Now in the shuttle and a two hour trip to meet my friend, loud country music,  with new earphones to replace the ones I lost…….I don’t have to share the phone conversation of my fellow travellers.

Two full chapters of my book. My imagination, my pleasure, my gift to the Grandies. The characters come alive..

The Amazing Alphabet book.

Creative writing and quilting.

My joy.
