Quivering Member

I am very fortunate to have a job where I can write during the down time. Having spent the last ten years of my professional life in social work I truly appreciate the novel (get it, ‘novel’ – ha) concept of having an empty desk. In social work there is no such thing as an empty desk. There is always something to be done, between paper work and clients to visit. Think of it as a never-ending and constantly expanding To Do list. Especially in current times where budget cuts create more work and less support.

There are downsides to letting the creative juices flow while at work. I can be in the middle of a steamy scene and need to put down my work in a flash to help a customer. A few weeks ago I felt like Ms. Perky from 10 Things I Hate About You.

Not sure who I’m referring to? Watch this clip to learn more. My apologies to my Deaf readers, I was not able to find a clip with captioning:


Now, “quivering member” has not made its way into my books as of yet. If it were to I might have to wait until I was at home to write. I wouldn’t handle the situation quite as smoothly as Ms. Perky did!

  1. Oh Laura, as a teacher and an author, this character made me feel a tad uncomfortable, especially ‘cos my first few stories were definitely of the “Quivering Member” variety. If only I had a Heath Ledger to come along ang show me how it was done 😉 Agree JM, he is sorely missed and I always have a lump in my throat when watching this and Knight’s tale.
