Prompt: Write a description of an object close up
It is accepted as a universal truth that paper is flat- a plane. But upon closer inspection this isn’t true. Looking close at a flat sheet we see small raises and pits. When the pen glides across the page it leaves a small grove where the ink is deposited. The grain of the page is made up with small fibers in various stages of laying and standing. Each piece is so small and so tightly woven that at a glance these small pieces are seen as only as a whole- just a flat sheet of paper. That is all we see when we fail to really look.
