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.

Revisions in fiction,
revisions in real life.
We discuss the revision process
and the mechanics of how it's done.
As our host plans to move to Madrid,
and officially enter his Spanish Period,
he contemplates his forthcoming memoir:
Hombre Lobo Americano en Madrid.
And he considers the things undone
in his immediate neighborhood.
And yours.
Stories include love spells,
the carnival in Midnight, and
an offer you cannot refuse.

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