Bending the Iron Bar

Dead Beat recalls Frank O’Connor’s words (one of the great short story writers of his and our time and Irish to boot) and thought he would share them with you..

“The story, like the play, must have the element of immediacy, the theme must plummet to the bottom of the mind. A character is not enough to make a play; an atmosphere is not enough to make a play, for the audience falls asleep. It must have a coherent action. When the curtain falls everything must be changed. An iron bar must have been bent and have been seen to be bend.”

Go ahead, you have Dead Beat’s permission, bend those bars.
