About

My name is Lucien Maverick.  I am a self-termed creative intellectual.  I have dedicated the bulk of my life to increasing my awareness of the various topics that interest me.  There are so many.  As it stands, I am predominantly interested in stories, politics, and puzzles.  Life full of puzzles that the observant eye can solve.  I am an atheist, naturally.  A truly skeptical person can’t accept anything on faith.  And needing facts to prove religion is crazy.  I am also a skeptic, and proud of it.  What I want to do with my life is to make a difference.  To open up people’s minds to new ideas, and to talk through old ones.  That’s my idea, anyway.  Kind of a slow start.

I am a college grad who got my Bachelor’s in Journalism and Public Communication, with the focus being on the public communication side.  Now I’m trying to find a stable career.  You have NO idea how difficult this is proving to be.  The job market is a brutal mistress, and Lady Luck doesn’t like me

One of the things about me is that I try and take in both sides of the political spectrum.  I am sternly liberal, but I follow all sides so I don’t have to worry about living inside an echo chamber.  Too many people only have people they follow who feed their confirmation bias.  That is not something I mean to fall into.  So you can call me a lefty who doesn’t just take part in the circlejerk on the left.  Think that one out at your leisure.

My career goal is…well, I don’t quite know.  Writing is what I like to do best, but that sure as hell doesn’t pay bills anymore.  Maybe I will find work with a socio-political publication, offering up my random and ranting opinions on that kind of stuff.  Or perhaps I can go work for a non-proft group or something.  I also have a knack for publication design and graphic design, that I would love to put to work for a company.  Given my focus on public communication in college, I also am pretty good at PR work.  Wish there were some of those jobs around.  Oh well, one step at a time.

  1. This guy needs to think before he opens his mouth again… Or I guess think before he sits behind his computer screen like a pussy, and write whatever he wants.

    • Wow. I’ve attracted somebody who goes by the user-name “IHateLucienMaverick.” That’s a sign that I’m getting somewhere.

    • You’re not the only one who does. He claims that he hates Darwinism but sounds like he supports it. What a hypocrite.

  2. Hi Lucien Maverick – your name is too good to be real – is it a nom-de-plume? I am starting to follow because you have been communicating with my sister Robin and you intrigue me. I have a question about your header images – where did you get them? it looks like you may have painted them yourself. they look like pastels which is the medium a friend of my uses. they are very cool (and intriguing also).

    • Rejecting you? What is this, a marriage proposal? I’m just stating my disagreement with your position. Man, you and yours REALLY need to get a sense of humor.

      • That sense of humor thing is just an excuse to demean a person like bullies who use that damn “it’s a joke” excuse to to try and justify they’re antagonism.

        If you want people to respect, then don’t use humor as an excuse to make people feel bad/

  3. The great (or not so great) thing about the internet is that anybody can write something about anything and typically in the blogosphere the bar is generally set very low..Be an athiest but not one of those hater condescending kind. Compassion is a virtue and I’ve found opens up alternative as well as creative ways of thinking.
    Just because a person is living on faith doesn’t make them ignorant or a jerk.
    Most people living on this revolving sphere have faith in something that may or
    may not be true. But you gotta respect where people are coming from even if you think it’s wrong.
    That being said Son, the Sun does not rise and set on movie and TV characters. You may find more depth between the archaic pages of paper or the soft gentle glow of a kindle white.
    I see the passion you have in stories and I salute you!
    Story telling is a craft and a great one.
    Pursue the dream with passion and discipline.
    Politics is a craft and a sad one.
    I don’t think being a talking head on msnbc or fox is a great place to help change minds.
    Most folks watching those shows already have made up their minds on the agenda and are only
    looking for confirmation in their views.
    You want to make a difference? Start small. Look around you and build on that.
    There’s probably people close to you that need someone to make a difference right now.

    Peace, Love and all that stuff.

    • It’s kind of funny – if I were to take all the statements made in this comment that sound like the things one sees on those inspirational calenders and removed them, I question how much would be left. 😛

      • PS. I don’t respect ANYONE’s views just because they believe it. If a belief is founded on something ridiculous and stupid, then I will mock it. If they are a nice person, then I will just mock their belief. If they are a foul person, then I will mock their belief and them. Born to be a perpetual smartass.

      • ^How ironic it is that you you claim that other people are foul when you’re foul yourself.

    • You know what, Steve? You’re on my list of atheists who I respect and like. But not Lucien ’cause he’s prejudiced bastard who thinks that he’s better than everyone who isn’t like him.

  4. Well, that escalated quickly.

    Good job for standing up for yourself & not faltering on what you believe/don’t believe in. People can be assholes.

      • Insecure people need to make themselves feel superior about something when life consistently proves otherwise.

        He is, intellectually and metaphorically speaking, a very small man sitting alone at home jerking himself of in self-congratulation for shitting on midgets, all the while bemoaning the fact that most people don’t really seem to like or need someone like him.

        “There are two groups, the liberals, who think, and the conservatives who don’t. I am against the corporate stranglehold on this country, and I think that I’m the only one.”

        Sweeping generalizations it is then. Lets be honest here, this just reads like someone trying to like themselves when life keeps telling them that they’re not particularly intelligent or valuable. Just like everyone else in the pack he’s got his own reasons for why he’s very special and everyone who doesn’t agree is just too ignorant to understand his clearly superior philosophy. But that is to be expected; real understanding generally requires perspective and honest self reflection. Dangerous prospects, obviously, to someone who is never at fault or anything less than brilliant. Self reflection or personal growth would only serve to change him and he is already perfect.

  5. I like your blog a lot. Some people are fucking hypocrites. The moment you start to speak your mind, they get on your ass. How does that make sense. Anyway, keep doing you

  6. Hey .. Saw your character analysis of Walter White.. It was amazing.. Can you suggest me some books which will help me to develop my characters(upcoming writer you see) . I want to clearly define the soul of my characters basically. If you have any suggestions email me . Thanks

    • I can only recommend books by my favorite authors. The reality is that finding your own voice is one of the essential parts of growing as a writer. I could say that I like how Michael Crichton makes characters, but his voice is totally different from how Phillip Pullman or K.A. Applegate does. It’s a fun journey to find out what kind of writer you want to be. I wish you luck.
