- If I come up with something I think is funny, will it be funny to anyone else? I mean, I like Larry The Cable Guy unironically, and I still snicker every time I hear the word "Uranus". Also, I want the humor to be really wacky and rapid-fire. But I also have no filter, so I'm afraid I'll do something so overly offensive and over-the-top that even Seth MacFarlane would call me depraved… which leads to me reining myself in so far that I'm either writing stuff so tame it could be in The Family Circus, or just writing nothing because I'm afraid I'll screw up. How do I know when I've reached my limits? How do I know that what I have will be funny to anyone other than myself?
- I have no sense of logic whatsoever. In the "what would your character do?" thread, I didn't at all think that high winds would be an impediment for a character who can naturally fly. So I'm also afraid of setting up situations where the characters' reactions are so dumb that not even "Negative Continuity / No Fourth Wall / MST3K Mantra" can handwave it.
