It has to be relevant.

And two days later, I have to submit 4000 words of pure literary genius. I have to tame my tutor’s senses and whisk her emotions away in a hurricane of action, my words ceasing to be groups of letters and becoming images floating through her mind. I want her to finish reading, and suddenly slam back down into her chair as reality hits her once more.
But how to do this, while simultaneously analysing James Joyce?
Do tell me, for I am quite lost and bogged down both intellectually and creatively.
