I've noticed that a lot of writers post their stories as works in progress not just here, but on many archives. How do you do it, without getting all your subplots tangled and realizing in chapter 13 that you have a plot hole in chapter 5 and that you're heading straight for a corner in chapter 15? I've tried writing that way, but it doesn't seem to work for me except with one-shots or *very* short multichapter stories (i.e. maybe three chapters). Normally, I have to get it all written and get to the third draft, at a minimum, before I feel confident enough that I've told the story coherently to post. Many times the plot and characters change from the rough draft to 3 or 4 or whatever it is. So those of you who post WIPs... how do you keep everything straight? Do you ever have the urge to go back and rewrite huge portions, or do you just retcon what you want to change, or leave it alone? And do you find that longer, more in-depth plots are more difficult to post that way or is it all pretty much the same?
