One day, James’ assistant comes in and finds Mr. Joyce sprawled across his writing desk, completely distraught. He asked James, “What’s the matter?” and James replied, “I’ve only written seven words today.” The assistant says, “But James, for you, that’s a really good day’s work.”
And James responded, “Yes, but I don’t know what order they go in.”
