Today I mapped out the plot, and worked on the characters, identifying their goals, motivations, and conflicts. I've charted where all the sex scenes are going to go, as well as where the hero and heroine's major growth points take place. There's a rough sketch of all the scenes, and they're listed in linear order. As it stands, I see two plot holes, so that's my goal tonight - to fill in those two plot holes so the story has all the "ingredients" in place before I start actually writing the story tomorrow morning.
I'm going to have roughly a week and a half to write the story, and a week and a half to clean it up. Imagine that on a sliding scale. Maybe more writing time, maybe more clean up time. Either way, wish me luck, 'cause I'm going to need it.
