I currently planning to install two motion sensor lights, one in the driveway and one in the back yard. The wiring is giving me a challenge.

I am getting the feed from and outlet, I will use 14/2 sheathed electrical cable from the outlet to the switchbox. In the switch box I will make two pigtails of the black wire and connect to the two switches. From the switch box I will run 14/3 sheathed electrical cable to the junction box outside.Back at the switch box I will connect the 14/3 red and black wire to the respective switch and connect the two white wires.
From the junction box going left to the driveway light I will run 14/2 and connect the 14/3 red wire to black 14/2. Going right to the backyard light I will also run 14/2 and connect the 14/3 black to the 14/2 black. In the junction box will connect all three white wires 14/3, left 14/2 & right 14/2.

Please let me know if these connection are correct.
