I thought I heard mention of a "Two SA books, one other book, Two more SA books, etc." pattern.

This is what I recall. Especially in the beginning seeing as there are no plans for another book before the second SA book, according to whats been said in this thread.

That is right, but it remains to be seen what happens in practice. Also, this does not include any non-Cosmere books Brandon might write, such as his YA stuff, which could happen whenever he feels like it.

Understandable. Does he write his YA when he needs a break from the real stressful stuff? YA seems like an area where he can relax and enjoy the writing process more then he would in other projects.

You can assume that anything that Peter says is true unless Brandon directly contradicts it AFTER Peter says it.

I'd be willing to bet that the Stormlight Archive is not going to be released back to back. I expect at least one non SA book between each book in the series.

I think either Peter or Brandon has said something along those lines, or at least that's what the plan is. I can't recall exactly what it wa, but I think it was something like 'One Stormlight book, the next Wheel of Time, Two Stormlight books, etc..." That doesn't seem right, so don't quote me on that order.

I had also heard of the two SA, one non-SA, but I wasn't sure if he'd try to do Dragonsteel (7 books, right?) while he's also doing SA. That would seem like a lot.

And when he says two SA, one non-SA, does he mean that there will be one year where there is no SA or does he mean that two books will come out in the same year, with only one of them being SA? So would that mean if he tries to do a trilogy that there will be a one to two year gap in between them?

Yeah, he'd probably finish SA before starting on Dragonsteel, or, say, the next Mistborn trilogy.  But I understand that he's got a lot of ideas for standalone novels, including possible sequels for Elantris and Warbreaker.

Depends on how long the books take to write, but he'd like them in the same year if possible.

Wow... There are some authors who can't even write a book a year, but TWO books at the size he writes them is just amazing.

Let me see if I'm understanding this alright: Two books a year, that's a definite, with it being two SA books one year, then an SA and one other book the next year?  Feel free to correct me on this, but that's the idea I'm getting.

Keep in mind he has drafts at various levels of progress for a lot of his "Cosmere" works. :)

No, that's not right. There will never be more than one SA book per year. Every other year (after the Wheel of Time is done) there may be a non-SA book as well as an SA book, if Brandon writes fast enough. If not, there will be years that have a non-SA book and not an SA book.

Thanks, Peter!

Okay, I'm sorry if this has been said anywhere, but I want to make sure:

I know WoT and SA are two huge projects, but is Mr. Sanderson still planning on writing Dragonsteel, eventually?
