Seven Writing Links -- Volume 99

So there I was last night, frantically driving to my 7:00pm writer's group meeting, listening to my Googlemaps app tell me I was going to arrive at 7:15pm at the earliest.

The question of the week:  Are you the kind of person who thinks of himself as late at 6:45 because you know you're GOING to arrive fifteen minutes late, or are you the kind of person who doesn't think of himself as late until the clock has struck 7:01, even if you still have 15 more minutes to drive?

I tend toward the latter.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links.

  1. If I leave knowing I won't make it on time, I feel late already. And I hate being late.

    1. I have the ability to ignore reality for short periods of time. Probably what lets me survive as a writer.

  2. I love being early, late is too stressful!

    1. So do I. It just rarely works out that way for me.

  3. I tend to not even be late. I over plan and end up arriving 10 minutes early because loathe being late to anything! Thanks for the links! I needed the NaNo one, but I'm seeing more junk about newsletters and ugh, I think I need one :/

  4. At least you made it to the meeting ;)

  5. I try to leave extra early so that I'm not late, but I tend to not think of myself late until it hits the time that I'm supposed to be there.

    My family, however... When I went visiting, we had dinner plans with the family for 7PM. My parents told everyone 6. One person showed up at 7, the rest showed up anywhere from 7:45 to 9...

  6. I'm either very early or very late, but I'm never, never on time. Quirky me...:-)
