Hello all, I have written several outlines of many different book Ideas of mine and I have somewhat fleshed out these ideas over the years; however, every time I attempt to really dive into getting an idea fleshed out into a full book, I run into a very serious problem that I have not been able to get passed... I cry... I'm not usually emotionally unstable... In general, in fact, I'd describe myself as very emotionally stable. BUT!!! every time I dive into my novels, I sob, uncontrollably... I'm sure the obvious explanation is that I'm too emotionally invested in the characters I've created, their struggles, etc., but I really cannot get passed this... Has anyone else encountered a similar issue? I just cannot focus on fleshing out the details needed to get a book from outline to completed novel when I'm crying and focusing on the main plot line. The main book that I really REALLY want to get published first climaxes in a tragedy, but in death the protagonist's goals are achieved and its a beautiful and apropos plot and I think it would be a very good story to get published, and soon! but I just cannot get passed this crying thing... Maybe if I drink a ton of alcohol I'd be able to get through it... maybe that's why so many authors were alcoholics? I jest, sorry, any advice?
