No updates on Thursday and Friday

The unexpectedly hard time I had completing the fourth Gang of 4 comic for Hello You! has lead to me getting behind on some other things, particularly my preparation for the next Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan story. The Stone of Contention ends on Wednesday. Most of the work on the next series, The Green Knight's Belt, is done, but a few crucial things are not, including the "cover art", blurb and various behind-the-scenes things to do with the organisation of the website.
I was not looking forward to scrambling to finish those things in time before Thursday, and as far as the behind-the-scenes things are concerned, it was by no means certain that I could. Still, I hate to delay updates.
The whole debate raging in my head was rendered moot tonight after my return from the day's cycling trip (by the way, if you're now wondering why I went cycling when I had so much to do for the next week, my answer is that it's very important for me to have the edge taken off me by strenuous physical exertion. You don't want to be around me when I miss it. I don't want to be around me when I miss it). My throat started seizing up, then my ears started hurting. I am coming down with something and it's likely to keep me at home for a few days, possibly all week and all of next week if it's full-blown 'flu. In fact, it was a bit of a race against time to configure the updates for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before my brain functions shut down. So I even if I was eager to do the behind-the-scenes work, I'm not going to be in any state to do it for a while.

Of course, there'll be other stuff for you to read. The Eye of the Underworld will go on updating all week, regular as clockwork. The Lives of X!Gloop has just ended for the time being, but it's there if you want to catch up with my juvenalia (scanning more pages from the unfinished stories was one project I would have postponed anyway even if I hadn't got sick).

By the way, that line Ioannes uses in Friday's The Eye of The Underworld, "I am a pacifist! I have a bad back" also appeared, with minor variations, in Friday's Alice. I never realised it at the time, but I've come to wonder if that line isn't a quotation from something I should have read or watched, but haven't...
