I came up with an idea for a new story. It's called "Beach Week" which is right after High School graduation a good portion of the graduating class goes down to the beach for week celebrate as a "last hurrah" before they all go their separate ways for college. The Main Character is James Tyler, a straight arrow type, straight A's and all that stuff, never really had much of an experience. His football player friend (who is just as smart as him), Travis invites him to beach week, and the whole story is basically all the crazy stuff that happens to them during the course of that week. And I'm just struggling with the order of events and where when major things should happen. One major event is James getting drunk for the first time and getting to the point where he hurls on a girl he's always had a crush on. And another event is James and Travis end up in jail after a fight at a party, and Travis opens up that he's always envied James for having parents who actually care about him. And when James's parents show up, they can't even recognize him. This is basically my first "teen" centered story. (I do mostly fantasy), so I'm wonder what the general plotting format is for this kind of story. So any help would be great.
