What Is A Phere?

Recommended Posts

Story Grid author Shawn Coyne is back on the Story Grid Podcast with a new unit of story called a Phere. If you don't have a Phere in your story, you don't have a story. Shawn Coyne used an example from the story RAGTIME.

So what is a Phere?

"The unit of energy which must be applied in a story to move the value shift from one end of a gradient or a spectrum to the other."

I guess that we should all read Tom Clancy and study his work carefully. After all, he knows "The Sum of all Pheres".

A new gimmick to get you to listen.


If you're at all interested in learning the art and craft of creative writing, sure, I highly recommend The Story Grid Podcast. But you don't have to subscribe to the podcast to engage with this one nugget of information.

I train my dragon to fetch balls to induce fear in my characters and vicariously in my readers who pay big buckets of gold for the privilege, which I use to feed the dragon so it has phere (energy) to fetch balls.  And so the cycle continues.
