Do you ask enough questions?

I loved this post by Janice Hardy

Are You Asking the Right Story Questions?

Really got me to thinking.
About my writing.
Maybe I need to ask more questions. 
Even if I ask the same questions, again, and again. Vary the questions, but push for deeper and deeper answers.
As Janice points out, most writers are familiar with the big plot questions. But how about the small scenes? They need questions too. 

Are you asking enough questions in your story? Giving hints to the right answers for your readers?

Will the questions get harder and the answers more complex? Or will the story fold into a beautiful piece of origami. 
Something to ponder.

Happy writing and have a wonderful weekend!
