To say you're welcome were superfluous…
Prepare for mirth, for mirth becomes a feast:
You are princes and my guests.

˜ Pericles, Act 2, Scene 3

A hundred thousand welcomes!

I'm Lisa DiDio, a young adult novelist and fan of all things creative. Here you'll find my musings on writing, life and the creative process, as well as links to the people and things that delight and inspire me.

What I've been up to:

In My Head

Anxiety. The election is brutal, the news is depressing, & beastly behavior is rampant. Yoga, meditation, writing, painting, and long walks help. So does unplugging from the internet.

On The Desk

The zero draft of my first foray into middle grade. Magic and mysteries and mummies. (Oh, my.)

In The Cup

Tazo Joy tea. It's a rough world out there. I'll take all the joy I can get.

Now Streaming

Just finishing a binge watch of Supernatural Season 1. So much love for the early seasons of this show. I forgot how scary it was!

Currently Playing

Music is essential to my writing process, but making a playlist for the MG has been tricky. I only have 31 minutes thus far, with Pandora's Nox Arcana station as back up.

On The Nightstand

Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches. A+ so far!
