This page is divided into two sections. The first is my Release Schedule which is just the date I’m planning to publish the book. This Release Schedule goes out to be about 2023, but anything after the current year (2020) and next year (2021) is subject to change.
The second half of the page is my writing schedule. If you’re interested in the nuts and bolts of writing — when I start projects, the different stages of the project, and revision notes.

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.
Gamma 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.
