    I wish to define a function that prompts me more than
    once: let's call it `my-function': when I type `M-x
    my-function', in the echo area I see (just an example):

     Hi, how are you today?
 
    .  Then I type, e.g., `fine RET', and again it prompts me with:
 
     I see.  And, what did you do yesterday?
 
    ... and so on.  Then I'm going to put some `if... else'
    conditions over my possible answers.  Can anybody please
    provide some hints about how to elisp this?

'read-from-minibuffer might be what you want.


(format "Your name is: %s"
        (read-from-minibuffer "Who are you? "))
