Q – Can you put that in the form of a question?

What if you could only speak using questions?

Is it true that you can have a conversation only using questions?

Is that possible?

What if you asked someone?

Who would know the answer?

What if you asked a linguist?

What makes a linguist know anything about questions?

Isn’t the linguist the one who studies speaking patterns?

Does a linguist work with sounds or actual words?

How would words or sounds address questions?

Would it be better to focus on ideas?

Do you think by asking questions only, one could get an idea across?

What would the idea be?

Can you express an idea only using questions?

When is the best time to use questions in a writing piece?

What if you used one in the beginning of a story to attract the reader?

What about the middle of a story to keep the reader thinking?

Kid to mom: ‘Will I ever run out of questions?’

What about right at the end to set up a sequel to your story?

Would you want the reader to think of possible scenarios following the story even if you don’t plan to write a sequel?

Wouldn’t that just frustrate the reader, knowing there is no resolution?

Would they think the resolution was meant to be unknown?

Or would you think the author is just milking it to make more money?

Do authors write just to make money?

Why shouldn’t a writer make some money for the hard work that’s put into their work?

Shouldn’t we resolve the issue we started at the beginning of this piece?

What makes you think we didn’t resolve it?

Can a conversation be had just using questions?

Don’t you think it’s up to the readers of this blog to determine if we succeeded or not?

Where do you think we’ll find the answer?

Isn’t the comment section below where readers can express their opinion?

What if the answer is not in the form of a question?

Why don’t we just wait and see?

You really like asking questions, don’t you?


About hdh

I have been telling stories for over 35 years. As a retired teacher, I hope to expand upon my repertoire and use this blog as a place to do writing. The main purpose is to give me and others that choose to comment, a space in which to play with issues that deal with storytelling, storytelling ideas, storytelling in education, reactions to events, etc. I will also explore some of my own writing, from character analysis to fictional and personal stories. Enjoy!

    Do you think my daughter is the only one who has perfected the art of having a conversation using only questions? Or, has this post also shown that it is possible?

    Did she ever watch a TV show called, “Whose line is it anyway”? Isn’t it possible she has found other sources to encourage her?

    haha. Love this post! Like hdh said this post reminds me a lot of Whose Line Is It Anyway. 🙂

    With Love,
