This poll is mostly for my own fluff pieces, but this can apply to many other authors. Releasing a story piece by piece lets readers get involve speculating things and a writer can incorporate suggestions from writers. Releasing stories piece by piece is generally faster. Cliff hangers may be exciting. A long piece written all at once is less likely to meander and will have fewer plot holes since the whole piece can be proof read at once. The nature of writing is that sometimes installments would be close together and sometimes they'd be distant. Cliff hangers may be annoying. Also, once the last part of a piece is done, all future readers will be able to read it all at once anyway, so why stagger it? I'm also open to comments for how to stagger or if anyone prefers middle ground styles (releasing several parts at once, taking a break and releasing more). Another option is to write the whole thing and then release it piece by piece. Would that be a good way to allow commenting or would that just be a frustrating delay from finishing the story?
