Discovery Draft: This is the preliminary version of the story. I write out all of my scene ideas, my plot sketches, the back stories, the relationships. I write everything down in various Scrivener drafts and then piece together a rough chronology, then break down the story by scenes and subplots.

Alpha Draft: This is the first draft. I’m an extremely linear writer — I find it difficult to write my stories out of order. I start at the beginning, write until the end and I almost never ever go back and reread. That’s usually how I end up stuck or putting things on the shelf. I only stop when the story feels stalled. There’s usually a reason for it. I don’t even read for typos or consistency errors.

Beta Draft: This is the second draft. I go through and reread and make any big changes. New chapters, scene cuts, moving things around. I do fix typos and inconsistencies at this stage, but it’s not the focus.

Posting Draft: Final read through for line level changes and inconsistencies as well as typos and spelling mistakes.

Release: The version that gets chopped into chapters for Release on Crimson Glass, Fanfiction.Net, and Archive of Our Own and is compiled for the ebook.

Patreon Schedule

One of the things I struggled with last year was organizing and delivering reward perks for my Patreons (who I deeply value — I could not put as much time and effort into the site without them. I was able to quit my night job in late 2018 because of them and I can pay for this site and other resources for my writing). If you’re interested in supporting, you can find it here: Crimson Glass on Patreon. I’m working on an entire content overhaul in January & February.
