Question: works in progress v. completed

Here's a question: How many writers post works in progress, and how many post only completed fics? I ask because I have a hard time getting into WIPs. Not knowing when an update will be posted - often not knowing how long the story is planned to be - puts me off to the extent that I almost never read them. I will bookmark a promising start, if I take a few minutes to see whether a start is promising, which isn't always; but then I can't always keep track of which bookmarked beginnings are being updated when and over how long, and I've been known to lose bookmarks...

And above all, I can't post a work in progress. I just can't. A story goes out complete, and that's it. Who knows what plot element from the beginning might have to alter to accomodate a snaffu / diversion / brilliant leap of imagination ;p discovered half way through?

I've posted drabble series in separate installments, because they're self-contained episodic minibits that grew into series (e.g. I posted my Janet Fraiser - Space Pirate fun originally in separate shorts before combining later), but in general WIPs scare me.

It may be the interrupted format that throws me off as much as the unknown delays. One reason I don't read stuff at fanfiction.net is the intensely annoying click-for-next-tiny-chapter after this tiny chapter format. Deliberately didactic or what? (the other reason is the very variable quality).

Any answers?
