Sometimes, you just need to know you aren’t alone. That others are going through the same thing. That maybe, just maybe, you can survive this. I think #phdchat is going to be that place! Every Wednesday at 1:30 CST, current PhD students from around the world “meet” on Twitter to discuss the trials and tribulations of getting through a PhD program and writing a dissertation. There’s also a wiki: http://phdchat.pbworks.com

This week’s discussion was on writing a literature review, which is conveniently the stage that I am at!
