Actress Felicia Day writes, stars in, and produces the hit web series The Guild, which is one of my favorite things happening online right now. In a recent blog entry, she describes what made her start writing the series:
I had a strange realization that time passes whether youâ€™re doing something with it or not. It would be easy to let every day go by easily with no risk and then, at the end of the day (my life), I would look back and realize that fear ruled me: At that point there would be nothing I could do about it. So, I got off my butt! It wasnâ€™t easy and I had a lot of lapses (I still do) but the experience of being ruthless with myself was an amazing lesson to learn.
The Guild is in season 2 right now, and a new episode comes out every Tuesday on Xbox Live, and then on MSN Video. Even though the webisodes are only around 10 minutes or less, I look forward to them as much as I look forward to a new episode of 30 Rock.
