Question: What is your greatest difficulty when writing fiction, and how do you overcome it?

When writing fiction, my story keeps opening up other doors. I actually fall in love with the characters, the settings; I live in a world with them for as long as I can. I don't want to let them go and I keep writing and writing. Thus, a project that is supposed to take two months, takes a year and more. To overcome this weakness, I write a plan for every book--and follow strictly.
