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.

What happens when the angel of vengeance fails to do his job because of a really good cup of hot chocolate? First, we congratulate you for surviving 2017, then immediately tell you it's time to get back to work. We discuss intentions, paths, the future, and all sorts of indefinable things. Then it's fashion sketches for secret projects! Readings come from fifteen years ago: "Lapse of Vengeance", in which an angel fails to do his job because of a distraction; and "Celia", something of a ghost story.

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