I have so many...and have somehow narrowed it down to 3ish:

1.) What is your favorite color?

2.) Where have you traveled to, not traveled to, want to travel to, and have no interest in traveling to?

3.) Asking because we’re both adopted and taken in by cats-what cat would you be if any? Breed, color(s), personality type, wild, “domestic”, etc?

3.5.) What’s one of the sassiest sentences you’ve said to someone in jest?

What’s your middle name? (The question Sarahs are always asked.) Also, thoughts on with and without the “h.”

My questions aren't suitable for general public consumption...I'll wait to see if anyone else has the same antisocial tendencies as I have sunken into. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to ask questions anymore, my imagination comes up with much more provocative answers as it is.

I've heard cats classified into two general categories (which also track re: my own wigglers): wily schemer and beautiful idiot. Into which camp would you sort your cat??

ok, here's one I've been struggling with a lot this month. I want to reduce the amount of time I spend on my humour essays - I actually recorded my hours for the last 4 essays and was appalled by how long they took. I went back to one essay cause it didn't feel finished or good enough, and spent another 2 weeks on it, which to be fair did make it an awful lot better and it suddenly felt like the essay had something to say. My issue is that on one hand, I don't feel that I can afford to spend 15+ hours on an essay when I have a lot other things to do (build an audience, podcast etc), but on the other hand, I feel that what is the point of putting something out there or writing a piece that isn't half as good as it could be (isn't your job as a writer to make your writing as good as it can be and not abandon it early)? I REALLY have been mulling this over in my mind a lot, and I'm going a bit mad (partly because I've wasted a lot of time in life already, and really need to get down to the business of writing + building an audience). Help? (and sorry about the long self-indulgent post here)
