The Supreme Court’s Rule Change Schedule

Why is it the Supreme Court can’t issue Rules changes on a schedule?

Thus far in 2016, the Court has issued 9 Rule changes.  At least 3 were issued on one day, and one the following day.  Why not issue them once a month, or once a quarter, or some other schedule?
