The Habit Podcast is a series of conversations with writers about writing, hosted by Jonathan Rogers. In today’s episode, Jonathan Rogers interviews Rebecca Reynolds.
Rebecca Reynolds is the author of Courage, Dear Heart: Letters to a Weary World. She is currently “transposing” Spenser’s Faerie Queene for a 21st-century audience. In this episode, Jonathan and Rebecca use the trinitarian paradigm of Dorothy Sayers’ Mind of the Maker (Idea, Energy, Power) to discuss the multitude of influences that together make an artist’s voice, then apply this wisdom with excellent practical advice on how we can better know and tend to our own creativity.

- Gerard Manley Hopkins
- Wendell Berry
- T. S. Eliot
- George Herbert and John Donne
