Transcript of Copy of Four types of Conflict

Internal Conflict is always Man vs. Self


a character dealing with his or her own mixed feelings
The struggle, fight, or battle of a story.
can appear inside of a character,
or on the outside of a character. Whether
it is internal or external, conflict makes the
story exciting, and often changes the
main character(s). There are four types
of conflict, Man vs. Man, Man vs. Nature,
Man vs. Society, and Man vs. Self.
Types of Conflict
Man Vs. Man
A struggle between two characters.

Despite the name of the conflict, the characters do not have to be men, or even have to be human.
Man vs. Nature shows a character having
a problem with nature and fighting against
that aspect of nature such as weather, animals, or land etc.
Man Vs. Nature
A battle between animated characters is
a "Man vs. Man" conflict because the antagonist is trying to stand in the way of the protagonist.
Rowing a boat, kayak, or canoe against a current to avoid danger or to survive, would represent a character fighting against nature.
A character fighting discrimination in a society
would greatly show a conflict between a man
and a community.
A man vs. man conflict in spider-man, we have the protagonist and antagonist in a physical battle. Both characters struggle to win!
Man vs. Nature shows a character having
a problem with nature, in this case its a prehistoric predator that's looking for human snacks.
Man vs. Society shows a conflict
in which a character has a problem
with the beliefs and/or laws of a
society.
Man vs. Society
A character fighting against politics or laws is fighting their society.
A character having trouble figuring out what to do, represents a common inner conflict.
Internal Conflict
The Man vs. Self conflict shows a character
having trouble making a decision or
choosing what to think or do.
Four types of Conflict

What is the difference between internal conflict and internal conflict?
Write about a time you experienced multiple conflicts. One internal and one external.
Write about a broken promise.
What is the promise?
To whom was the promise made? Why is it important to this person?
Who made the promise? Why? Was it something they were forced to promise, or did they want to make it?
Why did they break it? What was so important, they had to break it? Now go deeper, why did they really break it? (Look to a character fear, want, need, something that is so painfully vital they can’t keep their word.)
What happens when it is broken?
Who finds out? What is their reaction?
What are the repercussions of breaking the promise?


Explain!
Write a Short Story using conflicts!
Write about a secret.
What is the secret?
Who is keeping the secret?
From whom is the secret being kept?
Who are the people involved? (Are there more than just the two?)
Why does it need to be kept? What will happen if it is uncovered? Who will it hurt?
Is someone digging to figure it out? Why? How are they involved?
What happens when the secret is found out?
What does the discoverer decide to do? Keep the secret? Let it out?
What are the risks and rewards of each?
Write about a lie that protects.
Who tells the lie? Why? What or whom are they trying to protect? Why?
Who does the lie benefit?
Who does the lie hurt?
Who is involved?
Who will be hurt if the lie gets out?
What is at stake? (list each person and write what each has at stake)

Write about a lie that is told to hurt.
Who tells the lie? Why? What or whom are they trying to hurt? Why?
Who does the lie benefit?
Why did they tell it? What is so important that they told a lie? Now go deeper, why did they really tell it? (look to a character fear, want, need, something that is so painful, they tell this lie.)
