"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

Got any ideas?

I'm going to the Southern California Writer's Conference next weekend. The director, Michael Steven Gregory, would like to interview me while I'm at the conference, and asked me to come up with three questions I'd like to answer as a writer with a first novel being published.

Naturally, when he said "three questions" I immediately thought of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
"What is your name?"
"What is your quest?"
"What is the air speed velocity of the unladen sparrow?"

Readers and other writers probably don't want those questions answered - not by me.

I'm looking for suggestions. I should probably give people serious information, but I go for the funny every time. I don't want to appear too flippant, but I don't want to sound too precious.

What would three GOOD questions be?
