A story I know most similar to “The Michelle I Know” would be the story “To Build Fire” written by Jack London. Both are short stories based upon one character and their mental and physical struggles. Whether that be with another character or the setting. To build a fire is based on a man traveling with more ignorance on his back then supplies needed for survival. He battles self-challenges while continuously fending off the cold and nature around him. Michelle is going through a more mentally focused challenge in the story “The Michelle I Know”. A Plot diagram is very useful for story writers because it allows for any author to clearly see and decipher the rise, climax, and fall of their story and the details needed for those moments in the novel.
