Are you interested - An Academic Writing Support Group Online

Do you sit down to work on your dissertation, thesis, or qualifying paper and feel like your brain has left your body? Do your hands refuse to move over the keyboard when you sit down to write? On really bad days do you feel like a huge walking question mark, with no solid answers? Is what you are writing so tiring, boring, or tedious that you are beginning to wonder why you even try?

Well if you answered "YES" to any of the above questions, I think I might know a way we can help and support each other. Are you interested in joining me in a prolurkr sponsored Academic Writing Support Group Online?

What I would like to do is create a secure space where we can vent our frustrations, and celebrate our successes...and be acountable to each other to get our work done.

I don't know about you but I've wanted my own hood for as long as I remember. I started telling people I was going to be a college professor when I was if I don't finish this I will be losing a nearly 40 year old dream.

I know I need the support to meet my goals and timeframes. Do you want to give and get academic writing support too? Well email me and lets get this thing cookin!

The only requirements to join are that you are working on a required writing project (qualifying paper, thesis, dissertation, or the like), and your general topic is related to internet research. Beyond that...the field is open for play.

I would love to include a few recent Ph.D.'s to join us to act as beacons of hope. I don't believe there would be a lot of time requirement for the mentors, and so many prolurkr readers can use mentorship from those who have crossed over to the hooded-side. If you earned your internet research related PhD in the last three years and you would like to look in and comment occasionally, please let me know as well.

Come on guys what do any of us have to lose by banding together. Besides it's a great way to meet folks and have a group to hangout with at the next conference. We can be a virtual version of the folks on the right. I have dibs on the one with the long braid...someday I will have one again!

Email me at prolurkr...I await your response
