Plot Conflict - Character vs Self - John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat


The essence of fiction. 
It creates plot. 

The conflicts we encounter can usually be identified as one of four kinds: 
Character vs Character, Character vs Nature, Character vs Society, or Character vs Self.

Character vs Self
In writing time today we read the story John Brown, Rose and the Midnight Cat
It is an example of Character vs Self conflict.

Here is the story as a YouTube video.

We identified the problem/conflict  
(between character and society) in this story.

'The character who had the character vs self conflict was John Brown.  The conflict was that John Brown was jealous of the Midnight Cat because he wanted Rose all to himself.'  -  Jason

Then we demonstrated our knowledge of these by showing them on a story map.
