Default One Shot Adventure: Advice Appreciated!

I'm planning to GM a One-Shot adventure (in other words, an adventure which will play out in just one session; so you know what I'm talking about).

The players will consist of two total newbies without any RPing experience, and two slightly more experienced players (who are not much into rules, though they enjoy a good fight now and then).
These players are also without exception quite female (not that I think this will make a difference).

Now I've never GMed a One-Shot before. I read a Pyramid article on this subject, and I got my brain working. So I have some ideas how to do this (pregen characters, start with a Bang, Time Pressure, uncomplicated plot). Still, some of you will have more experience with single-session play than me, I guess.

Do you have any ideas, hints, tips and advice for me? Things that worked out well for you? Things that spell certain catastrophe?
