Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon. When we love a woman we don’t start measuring her limbs.

LOOSE

And watch as art creates itself right in front of you.

PRACTICE

Today, let your instinct and your brain conceive something wholly new.

Write for fifteen minutes. When your time is up, post your practice in the comments section. And if you post, please give some feedback to your fellow writers.
