Writer's Block: Bookmarks

It'd have to be Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra wasn't that bad, either.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Writer's Block: Desert island

Harry Potter

To Kill a Mockingbird

Deltora Quest
List three books that have changed your life:

Writer's Block: Killer Queen

Bohemian Rhapsody. No reason needed.
What's your favorite Queen song, and why?

Writer's Block: A literary masterpiece

Harry Potter. Duh.
Which books will you certainly read to your children, nieces, nephews or godchildren?

Writer's Block: Part deux

Which movie sequel do you like better than the first, and why?

Aliens by James Cameron. He took the story to a whole different level, and having multiple aliens as opposed to one made the film much more interesting, exciting and unnerving - and of course Michael Biehn is in it ;)

Writer's Block: He said he'll be back

Now that Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to acting, which of his film characters would you like to see him play first?

If they make another Predator film, I would like to see him return to that series, or The Terminator, of course :)

Writer's Block: A cinematic extravaganza

If a movie was made of your life, what actor would you want to play the lead? What about the romantic interest?

If my life were to be a movie, I would love Emily Browning or Vanessa Hudgens to portray me, because I simply adore the two of them. For my love interest, I'm thinking Shiloh Fernandez, Matt Lanter or Jensen Ackles (if I was older ;)

Writer's Block: You're my best friend

If you could shrink any animal down to miniature size and carry it around in your pocket, which animal would you choose?

A chameleon and a penguin :)

Writer's Block: I wanna be just like you

Was there ever a fictional character who you admired so much that you strived to be like him or her?

Hermione Granger. Katniss Everdeen. Effy Stonem.
