Susan Does a Meme: Outrageous


This week’s Writer’s Island prompt was outrageous, which I thought a pretty good prompt for old Trevor.

Trevor’s not the most outrageous person you’ll ever meet. I’ll grant you that. Instead, Trevor’s Outrageousness comes in the form of a lack of caring and inhibition. In a sense, he’s my wild side, the part of me that longs to be let out. I’ve gotten better over the years since I created Trevor, but I’ve still got nothing on the master — probably because I care more than he does.

At the same time that I’ve been mulling over this prompt, Julia tagged me with the Seven Things Meme. She said it was for me or ShapeShifter to do. And so with no further ado…

How Trevor equals outrageous. In his own words and voice, so don’t yell at me.

1. Read this post. It’ll tell you a fucking lot.

2. I got conned by the groupies around this joint to write a poem. I think I said a lot of shit they were wishing they had the balls to say.

3. Is it really sick if I say that piercing Mitchell’s ear was one of the highlights of my life? It wouldn’t have been if he’d taken it like a man. Shit, one little hole, right? Count on the big idiot to fuck that one up. Royally.

4. I’ve conned Rusty into all sorts of great shit. Most of it hasn’t been on the blog ’cause it’s in the book. Which means you got yet another reason to wait for the book. Can’t wait? Want it sooner? Make a bigger noise about this here blog. Bring your friends over. Leave comments like mad. Things are looking good, so get off your asses and help make ’em look better.

5. Ever been shopping for your properly healthy, and probably perfectly organic, fruits and green shit and seen someone do this? It sucked that Rusty was so cool about it. I fucking love it when she turns as red as her fake hair color.

6. This is where I’m supposed to talk about me and Rusty, but forget it. Read the book. Go back up to #4 if you’re all frustrated there’s no book to read yet. Trevor Wolff doesn’t repeat himself. Ever.

7. Now, I don’t think any of this makes me outrageous. This is who I am, and fuck you if you don’t like it even though you know you do or you wouldn’t be hanging out here so fucking much. But I’ll tell you one thing that is outrageous. That’s that I’m this rock star and I don’t drink. Not such a long story why, but … you gotta wait for the book.

I know, I know. I suck. But trust Trevor; the book doesn’t. Go on back up to #4 and follow those instructions once more. If you’ve done it right, this’ll be the third time now and that means you’re good at it and you got it down.

What’s that? I can’t hear you. The buzz about this here blog’s not loud enough yet.

Go fix it, will ya?

According to the rules of the meme, I’m supposed to tag someone, but while you groupies are all awesome, I don’t know how you can follow Trevor with the proper amount of style. Thus, if you do it, please give me a link back! You know… it’ll help make that buzz a little bit louder.

Look! Winter did! So did Ann! And Bethanie! Go check out their own outrageous comments, why don’t you?

    Hmmm. Outrageous, huh? I wonder which of my characters fits that the most? Oh, hell. It’s not either of my rock stars Carlisle or Dominic… it’s… it’s WEYLYN! My bi-sexual werewolf. Always looking to get his were on, that man. *sigh* I’ll think about doing the meme while I’m AT WORK on a SATURDAY. BR/BR/Loved the meme. That Trevor is such s dude.

    Now, Susan and the powers to be. I can’t read a book that is not published. I can’t purchase an autographed copy of a book that is not published. I cannot tell anyone how wonderful it is without reading it – and that won’t happen unless it is published. So, someone needs to get the ball rolling or I will keep spouting cheap metaphors.BR/BR/And Trevor – maybe a poem is in order again.

    What a fun and fabulous way to do a meme. Very nice – also fun to hear our honey Trevor again! 🙂

    This is a fabulous twist on the meme, Susan – and Trevor, of course (don’t throw that – I know it’s really your meme.) A great way to tie the ‘outrageous’ prompt into it. If Trevor wasn’t Trevor he would be outrageous.

    I’m buzzing, I’m bragging, I did the meme thing, and now I’m doing the sleep thing (still catching up-or trying to). 🙂

    Y’know, sometimes I really wish I could let the ‘Trevor’ inside of me loose too. Trouble is I care too much as well. It’s like the eternal struggle between the Id and the Ego. I think Trevor is very much in touch with his Id!

    Oh, this was fun (I did my own version)! Trevor rocks!!
