Love and Congratulations from your Mom and Dad!
congrats on appearing on the Globe Spring reading list last week!
what did Doreen use as 'research', so to speak, to visualize and make predictions for the setting of novel in the 2050s
It’s a bit disconcerting to read passages of Calgary that are reflective of what is happening right now in this time of Covid, What are your own thoughts about this.
what are you working on now...
congrats Doreen, curious about your journey of going through the writing process,how long did it take, what did you learn about yourself?
Did you have a schedule to write? Did you write every day?
Hello! A question for Doreen: how were you able to keep all of the novel, s elements alive and in continuity for over 10 years?
Hi and congratulations Doreen, from Cheryl Foggo and Clem Martini. It was wonderful to hear you sing. Does music play a role in the novel?
Doreen, what do hope readers will take from reading your novel?
That’s a beautiful outlook on The Great Slowdown. Thanks Doreen.
Thank you for normalizing rejection as part of the success process!
thank you for that word “resilience”. my son lives in Calgary and I worry for Alberta.
You have been engaged in the Oral Storytelling community in the last few years. How has that changed your novel?
Hi Doreen from Ottawa! When you were developing your novel concept, did you have a clear idea of who your characters would be, or did they surprise you in who they became in the end? (So proud of your achievement! Much love, Lori
