Dear community & respected teachers,
I am creating a short movie and it is titled: "The waking maverick".
The meaning of the title should be:
Someone, who is unlike anyone else around him and at the same time
is in a state of being completely awake (aware of the things around him, being very perceptive, sentient etc.).
I am not a native english speaker and I was hoping to find out through your help,
whether "The waking maverick" is correctly written or whether it doesn't make any sense or a substitute word
is in order.
Thank you very much!
Best regards, Mike
You are absolutely right. Movie titles don't have to make sense =)
Ahhh, so he would be someone waking from sleep. I always thought: "Waking UP from sleep.." is the correct way to say it.
Waking from sleep..
Waking UP from sleep...
are expressing the same meaning?
Thank you very much for your reply!
Have a great day.
