You may need to simply start writing. I see writing a story like going on a road trip. When I do a drive across the country I know which cities I will stop in and at least one site or activity I will see. Everything else I do along the way happens on the fly.
The same goes for my writing. I need to know where my characters are starting, where they will end up and some specific things they will do during the trip. I like to know the major events of my story, but the times between or what happens while the characters go from one location to another are written in the moment. When I begin writing a chapter I know one or two main events that will take place. Precisely how or when they occur happens on its own as the story develops.
