I have so far created a story map. That allows me to see what has to be dropped and what adjustments to make in order that I do not end up with a disordered muddle that doesn't flow properly. This will make actually writing the scenes so much easier. I plan then to launch into writing the scenes and then go back and trim as necessary to fit the original structure in terms of timing.
If you've never done this sort of thing before then this seems to me a good place to start.
Think about it.
1) If you want your book to be optioned, or better still made into a movie, then why not write it that way?
2) The structure shown here gives you the major "tentpoles" which hold up your plot, providing a valuable checklist to make sure all major story elements are present.
3) The structure used in movies guarantees progressive escalation.
4) You could use the timings and map them to approximate page count as a guide to pacing (haven't tried this but clearly feasible).
