I'm old! The short term memory is about shot. When one of the stories I am reading goes much longer than seven days without a new post, I find that I need to go back two or three chapters to remember what's happening in the story. After the third or fourth time doing this with a story, I just say "the hell with it" and forget about the story. Of course, with my memory growing shorter, I never remember to get back to the story once it has been completed. I know we've discussed this before, but what do you consider the ideal length of time between postings? For me, as I've said, a week or less is perfect.
