NYCC 2019: Felicia Day wrote a book for the super nerd in you

For the first time in four years, Felicia Day is back for New York Comic Con! Day has a long list of geek credits, including founding Geek and Sundry, creating and starring in The Guild, and several appearances in genre favorites. She also wrote a book, You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), that chronicled her journey as a creator. Now, Day's back with a brand new book called Embrace Your Weird. At NYCC, Day dropped by the SYFY WIRE Live Stage to tell us more about her latest endeavor.

"After I wrote my memoir, a lot of people came up to me and told me how my story inspired them to start creating," said Day. "I love what I do, and the fact that I can inspire other people to embrace who they are and be free with creativity and also just getting their voice out in the world is really important."

"This book is a lot of funny, geeky advice on how to be more creative," continued Day. "How to define yourself as a creator and a person, and how to overcome things like procrastination and anxiety. All of the things that keep our voices silent. But I believe that creativity is the best self-care that we can do. Also, there's pictures of roid-ed out unicorns and fart jokes. So it's funny and also good for you."

Day also brought us up to speed about what she's been working on and graced us with the unexpected showdown between her various characters from The Magicians to Supernatural.
