Consider the effort required to publish something. Ideas must form; the ideas must be elaborated or refined; they must then be described and connected in a coherent form; vocabulary must be carefully chosen; and the grammar, syntax, and the very appearance of words on the page must be carefully prepared. Thus, attempting to publish has involved a great deal of intellectual and manual labor. Every thought that reaches paper has been placed there by someone, and spending hours tapping at keyboards is not a particularly stimulating or pleasant activity.
