What type of chapters do you generally prefer?
Long - filled with details, action and developments so you get the story as fast as possible.
Or short - still has lots of details, and action - but since the chapters are broken up, you have some time and space to process the information as it's given.
This is something I always struggle with as an author.
When I'm reading a fic, I sometimes prefer shorter parts - particularly if there is a lot of detailed dialogue or a major plot development. It gives me the time to really absorb what's happened in the story. And it insures I don't miss anything by "skimming." But I also like shorter parts posted every few days. This way, there's no problem with continuity or forgetting what happened in the last part. If more time will be taken between chapters, then I usually prefer longer.
Still, I'm wondering what others think. I think having some insight into others opinions will make my stories better.
So which is it - no such thing as too long? Or briefly organized by topic?
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
