Ever wanted to challenge yourself artistically? Write a story every day, photograph something or illustrate something on a regular basis? John Urbancik has done that, on a grand scale: InkStains was originally a year-long daily writing project, in which he wrote a story a day every day for a year. By hand. Now, as he attempts to do this for a third time, he’ll share with you his secrets of how it’s done. Or maybe you just want to hear some of the stories that have resulted from this. InkStains is now a weekly podcast featuring stories of any and every genre as well as discussions about creativity and personal challenges and what it takes to make a thing – and the kinds of scars and stains that might leave.

Host John Urbancik discusses writing and photography and art and creativity. This week: Impossibilities, where he tells you why you shouldn't just give your work away for free; he talks about a recent road trip with another horror author and what went wrong; he tells you why he's reading Paperbacks from Hell, discusses little epiphanies, and answers a listener question about people watching. Readings include an alien invasion of Great Britain, a sales pitch for a new form of transportation, and a meta-fictional tale of what really happened in the dark woods of Pennsylvania.
