Hi, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good resource for portraying a character's descent into insanity. This character suffers from extremely traumatic events and I want him to, for awhile, become unable to communicate and appear as if he is a babbling idiot. I've already written it but I don't think the descent is believable. I've seen a couple of books on psychology for writers but I wanted to see if anyone had personal experience. My daughter is working on a doctorate in cognitive neuroscience and she is an incredible writer but I don't have access to her wisdom right now. I'm impatient because I'm looking at this chapter and I'm not feeling it.
