This is a virtual writing group for people who need to write their dissertations rather than join writing groups. The idea is to use this blog and the people who contribute to it to do whatever it takes to defend our dissertations in spring of 2015. You can post your goals for the week, log pomodoros and words counts, talk through an idea, brag about accomplishments, vent about obstacles–so long as it is somehow getting you closer to the end goal of a good enough dissertation. Just get in touch to be added as a user and include your name in the title of your posts. Or, you are welcome to cheer us on in the comments or merely lurk undetected.
