Thanks guys. I'd been trying to figure out if my last year was excessive
or not in an Agile environment.

Last year I had documentation deliverables for 36 separate releases (that's
one every week and a half). Part of that was due to losing my boss last
summer and trying to keep up with everything by my lonesome until we hired
another technical writer. But it sounds like 20 deadlines per year per
writer would still put us on the high end, even for an Agile environment.

(I'm lobbying to add a third writer, which was one reason why I asked....)
