...and thus, the #reposting begins. I got tagged in so many pictures beautiful pictures of of LTAL and now I'm going to share/keep/hoard them like the dragon I am. I'm trying to come up with a specific hashtag for them. Any suggestions? Part of me (probably my ego) is saying #CutieCode ...

#igwritersjan Day 8: "Beautiful Covers" There are so many gorgeous covers out there, and even though I'm tempted to once again toot my own horn, I'll resist the urge and shout out a fellow Swooner because these covers are CAPTIVATING. And if you haven't read anything by @tempestchani you need to get on that right away. #swoonreads #swoonsquad #bookcovers #bookstagram #booknerdigans #ya #yalovin

A big theme in my book, LTAL, is communication or rather the lack thereof. In college, I majored in Creative Writing, but it wasn’t for fiction--it was memoir. I’m a notoriously private person and am trying (fighting) to scale that back a little. Let’s Talk About: Joy and Foolish Hearts This week, I continue the discussion on seasonal depression, the ghosts of Thanksgiving pasts, who brings me joy and connecting with Iris, a character in Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills! After writing yet another lengthy post, I realize Instagram really isn’t the best place for this series. I will continue to do an announcement post here but the updates will be available on my blog (clairekann.wordpress.com) or my Wattpad (wattpad.com/user/ClaireKann). See you there! . . . #amwriting #memoir #yabooks #booktalk #wattpad #swoonsquad #shinee #foolishhearts
A big theme in my book, LTAL, is communication or rather the lack thereof. In college, I majored in Creative Writing, but it wasn’t for fiction--it was memoir. I’m a notoriously private person and am trying (fighting) to scale that back a little. Let’s Talk About: Seasonal Depression ❤ (I wrote a super long post only to find out, for Instagram, the limit does indeed exist. The following is just an excerpt--the rest is available on my blog clairekann.wordpress.com. Next week's talk will be within the alloted character limits 😂) ❤ Every November I, like millions of others, get hit by a wave of seasonal depression. Only, I didn’t know that’s what was happening until this year. I’ve had anxiety since I was a wee one. Have had anxiety-induced depression and anxiety-induced insomnia and anxiety-induced You-Name-It-I-Got-It. My anxiety is pretty much The Queen of these here lands, but not in November. See, the number one difference this year in November was: I wasn’t anxious. Nothing was going terribly wrong. Everything was swimming along as well as can be expected considering the current state of my home country. And yet, there I was, with barely enough drive to get out of bed to go to a job I love and when I did get to work, I stared into space for hours and made HORRENDOUS rookie mistakes; going WEEKS without writing a single word for any of the WIPs I’d been working on and not updating any of my online stories; suffering from migraines for days on end because of constant dehydration; not grocery shopping or eating because it was literally too much effort to chew food; couldn’t tell you the last time I washed my dishes or vacuumed my apartment or did laundry; and basic self-care was basically non-existent--and not bubble baths and facials, okay? The basic every day get ready things fell by the wayside. For a long time, I thought it was just me reaching peak winter laziness. I *could* get out of bed, but I just didn’t want to and so on and so forth. LIES. All of it. My brain was lying to me, which seemed unthinkable. I finally realized something was wrong on Thanksgiving...
I so wish I was in Mexico with Elise and Mati — and Karole! 💛 Thanks for sharing this gorgeous image, @karolecozzo! 😘 . . #TheImpossibilityOfUs #SwoonReads #YALit #YoungAdult #IReadYA #ILoveYA #IWriteYA #BooksOnTheBeach #FierceReads #Bookstagram #BookLove #SwoonSquad #YARomance
Writing itself is generally my escape from reality. But some days it's hard to get motivated or feel confident. On those days I usually take a look at this shelf, which contains books from a whole bunch of my publisher siblings, and remind myself that pretty soon my own book will be on that shelf, too. And that gets me excited to get back to work. This and coffee. Lots of coffee. #IGWritersOct #amwriting #WritersofIG #writersofinstagram #YA #yaauthor #bookstagram #swoonreads #swoonsquad
Swoon turned NINE today! Swoon’s story is one that is made up of many incredible women...a brilliant mother who always encouraged my love of fashion and modeled working as hard and passionately as you can in this short life. My mentor @mismetz who taught me everything I know about bridal and believed in my Swoon vision from day one. All of the wonderful Swoonies past and present who worked here to create this wonderful place where women get to put on beautiful dresses and have their bodies and stories loved and celebrated. Swoon’s first employee and manager, Alisha, who has been an amazing co-pilot for six years. Finally, all of our fabulous Swoon brides who believed in finding magic in this little store in Reno, Nevada and let us Swoon alongside them on one of the most important journeys in life. So much love to all of you. XO, Michelle 💖✨🎂✨💖✨🎂✨💖

Young Life camping season is officially over and I've couldn't have done it without these two Swooners.
