What is a could "template/outline" for a Dubstep song?

daftwill123 Asked: What is a could "template/outline" for a Dubstep song?

So I've been working with DAW programs for about a year and a half now, but I still have yet to finish a song. It always seems the problem is once I get one section of a song done I don't know how to advance or build backward because I become overwhelmed with modulating/automating various sounds especially in a creative flow. So my question is: Would one modulate bass lines as you go along or should I be making 5 or 6 unique sounding basses and then make various rifts with those. If the latter is the answer what is a good template to go with for creating dubstep songs. My idea would be:

4-6 Basses (each unique sounding)
4-8 Drum Patterns (when I say this I include hats, snares, etc. as a "pattern")
2-4 Synth Leads/Melodies
Various: Bleeps, FX, Samples/Quotes, etc

If you kind of have an idea of what I'm talking about then I'm sure you'll be more helpful, if you have any questions let me know. I'm currently using an APC40 w/ Ableton Live 8, but I also use FL Studio 9 as well.
