I don't know where the journal is, but am posting here.

  Are there writing forms that you avoid as either a writer or a teacher? If so, what might you do to become more comfortable incorporating them into your own repertoire? Briefly describe these ideas in your workshop journal.

As a writer, I avoid any hint of humor in my writing. I don't feel I can do it well, and am afraid of coming across as a nut. I don't really know what I can do to overcome that, except to just launch out and give it a try. Which is something I am always trying to get my students to do.

As a teacher, I try not to avoid any forms of writing, but do shy away from the humor. However, I have had students surprise me with the degree of humor they incorporate in their writing. Makes me stop and think that if they can do it, why can't I.
