Houston, we have a plot

I think I have something with the shape of a story. Wow. What an exercise this was. I went through a surprising number of drafts of story outline before I reached this point. Now I can consider writing a draft of the story itself, knowing that it has at least a chance of not being hopelessly flawed.

I'll probably need to do this for every story I write for a while until I can internalize the lesson and build a feeling for story structure. I also think I need to do this for at least one more novella-length thing before I can re-attempt the Novel-Length Bond Story (or sorry mess). The problem of plotting that is over my head at the moment.
