Thank you for taking the time to write this out and help me. Describing things has always been my fatal flaw in writing novels. I feel like it's either to basic or it's to much, I never am satisfied with the way I describe characters and environments.
Also, when I begin writing and have to stop for unforeseen reasons, it's almost near impossible for me to pick back up where I left off. I have a graveyard of stories that I have 40,000 words to but have major trouble going back and adding onto them (i think it's also because of the intimidating CYOA format).

I think my main problem with plotting a novel or a CYOA instead of a comic book is the fact that I have a lot more breathing room. When writing a comic book, I almost never had the ending in my mind when I start, but for some reason I have an urge to decide exactly where the story goes, because this is what authors do to make there stories more concrete.
Sometimes I would simply walk into an issue after a plot would resolve and simply write the next one blind, and it would spin off into plenty of other interesting subplots. Instead, when writing a CYOA, I could see the story getting extremely messy and incoherent, especially if I write to many paths and have to go back to an unmotivated plot that I have long since resolved (and/or forgot about).
I also have a formatting problem. I used to handwrite my plot lines, but as of now it's very difficult for me to sit down and write and plan. I think it may be because I don't have any organization skills or any way to format it to appeal to me. I would write plotlines in chunks, say, a subplot with a character gains an interesting development, and then I would know the general area it would go next. Again, I never had an ending in mind and was always open-ended (kind of like the only story so far I've published, which wasn't planned at all, and you can probably tell with the randomness of that story).

Hey guys, I've really been trying to gain motivation and creative juice to write a solid CYOA here. I have plenty of ideas flying around in my head, but motivation is hard to come by these days (depressing life shit) and I need to find it somehow. So, if you guys have anything that helps you on that front, please leave those down below.
But the main point of me posting this thread is transitioning from a comic book writing format to a full-fledged story. Some history: I've been writing for about 5 years, but as a child, I was literally grounded all the time and spend all of my free time writing. Well, in this time, I was not writing novels or short stories, but rather writing and drawing comics in an issue format. Ever since then, I've had plenty of ideas in my head that would fit neatly into this said format, but, I'm having trouble getting my thoughts into a novel format. I've also been out of writing for a couple of years.
I was just wondering if anybody would know how to train myself to format and plan my stories in a novel format (and I've browsed Google, and read plenty of articles that say plan, plan, plan, but I find it so difficult to do so.) Usually I have a solid plot with an open ending and endless subplots that keep the story juicy until the overarching plot is resolved. I found that I was very good at writing subplots and developing characters, but novel format is difficult for me.
I don't even know if this made sense, but fingers crossed somebody understands and will take time to help me out. Thanks.

Immortality, but also the ability to make people immortal with me.

Well, you're right and wrong.

Goddamn, you are worthless. It's not your fucking job to try and fix something that isn't broken. It's actually not your job to meddle in somebody else's life. Get off your high horse, mind your own fucking business, and shut the fuck up.
Damn, now I wish I did know you. So I could cunt-kick you.
Right in the cunt.

Yea, you're a piece of shit. Doing drugs doesn't make you a bad person, and it definitely isn't up to your nosy bitch ass to snitch on them. Grow some nuts and stop being a judgemental prick.
I hate people like you. If I knew you in person I would cunt-kick you.

Went to school, saw countless couples making out and giving each other gifts, my best friend got a rose from a girl he's been pining over for a while now, and I've been pretty depressed anyway, so it's just a depresso expresso for me. Hopefully these suicidal tendencies will go away in the next couple of days, tired of being in this rut this past week or so.

Nobody gave two fucks about Marv, even the cops didn't seem to care he was almost murdered.
