Control, Alt, Delete

Tap-tap, pause.

Click-clicking of nails on plastic.

Tap-tap, stop.



Hum; wheels rolling on floor.

Shrill whistle of a kettle.

Clink-clank; metal against glass.

One loud tap; three keys at once.


Tap-tapping; fast.


It is Trifextra time again.  The theme this weekend is “A New Beginning”.  I hope I did not go too far out with this one!

    It’s great, once the writing flows (got to have a beginning before you get the middle and end :))

      The key phrase in your comment is, “once the writing flows”. Sometimes it just comes, sometimes it takes ages to form a single sentence – but the satisfaction once your fingers start moving is a true rush!

    Genious, I love this sort of texts that provide more than just visual stimuli. You should win!

    Love this so much! The onomatopoeia of writing lol

    • Sandra says:

      I considered entering a tirade of curse words that come to me when the words don’t, but then that would have removed from the flow of the piece. Lol.
