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.

One of the most important
things you can do as an artist
and as a human being
may be to try to understand
how someone else lives.
Their hopes, dreams, and fears.
Also, it's time for you
to talk about your favorite
artists, musicians, and writers.
Stories include a special deck of cards,
a life flashing before the eyes,
and a lady and a tiger.

John Urbancik discusses
writing, photography, art, and creativity,
and also reads stories.
