In the previous version of Windows Live Writer you could set the save interval so that you could decide how often Windows Live Writer would’ve your current post as a draft; and by default the new Windows Live Writer  saves the post every 2 minutes.
But there are others who would prefer for this not to happen so frequent, or would like to do this every minute— cause you can only do this by minute.
So with the new version, they changed up the GUI and removed options to some settings, but they weren’t removed from the registry.
So, break out the registry editor…
Choose START button, choose RUN…
Enter REGEDT32 ..
Change the AUTOSAVEMINUTES to something other than 2… which is the default.
Make your change, and then exit the registry.
I hope this helps…
