Can you guess who wrote these lines? “Of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.” Hint: The writer’s been dead for at least two millenniums.
Apparently, you and I are not the first writers to complain of the butt-wearying effects of too much time spent arranging and rearranging words.
Writers have been complaining of the writing blahs since the papyrus days. This passage is from the Bible — Ecclesiastes 12:12. Which means that somebody was experiencing the writing blahs something like 2,300 years ago.
As for me, today is today, and I’m off to yoga. Now!
