Episode 47: Writing, Comparison, & Building Better Habits with Author Hannah Brencher

One of my favorite people ever gets to join me on the show this week!

Author Hannah Brencher’s writing has resonated with me an incredible amount, perhaps more so than any author. I’m not sure if it’s the Enneagram 4 wing 3 in both of us or the fact that we both met our spouses online, but at times reading her writing made it feel like we’re kindred spirits.

I also went through her Summer Writing Intensive, which was so instrumental in me getting the actual writing of my book started.

We’ve been trying to schedule this conversation for a while, but between a global pandemic and Hannah becoming a first-time mother, we hadn’t been able to until now.

But this was such a great conversation! We talked about writing, how to build and maintain better habits, how creatives — and other people in general — can fight against comparison and defeat the lies we are told. We also dispelled some myths surrounding online dating and talked about her new book, “Fighting Forward: Your Nitty Gritty Guide to Beating the Lies That Hold You Back,” which comes out in early January 2021.

If you’ve never read any of Hannah’s work before, her first two books If You Find This Letter and Come Matter Here are fantastic. I’m also a subscriber to her Monday email list, The Monday Club, and it’s a great source of motivation and inspiration every Monday morning. You can sign up for that and find more of her work on her website, hannahbrenchercreative.com.

Be sure to give Hannah a follow on Instagram as well — @hannahbrencher

You can watch this entire conversation on YouTube! Starting at 2 p.m. CT on Oct. 12, the full video of our conversation will go live on the In No Hurry Podcast YouTube page.

Like Hannah, Every Monday morning I send out an email to my mailing list that includes a devotional and some scriptural truths to start your week. I’d love for you to join me!
