A couple of months ago I began writing to one of MSP's lifer's who was looking to correspond 'with someone interesting'. I like to think I'm an interesting person (I'm a creative writing teacher, a writer and a musician), but apparently not interesting enough! I put a lot of effort into those letters as well as sent some gifts in the form of books and posters, none of which were acknowledged.

Later, after several months had gone by and I'd received no reply, upon reflection it occurred to me that what this inmate was possibly looking for was a 'romantic liaison', in which case this should have been mentioned in his pen pal spiel. I'm a 48 yr old married woman who was offering genuine friendship and this has clearly been rejected. Does this prisoner really imagine that a well-adjusted and 'interesting' woman would seek out a 'romantic' correspondence with a man languishing in prison for life? Only a troubled person would do that. Call me naive, but I would have thought that 17 years on Death Row might have humbled William Holly.
