My dear fellow, whenever are you going to come? What about an early start?—and here you are having breakfast, or whatever you call it, at half past ten! ~~Gandalf
I had pre-written the post for Chapter 4, “Over Hill and Under Hill”, and scheduled it to post itself automatically.
But it did not post. Instead, it deleted itself. I’m not entirely sure what happened but I am pretty confident that it was all my fault.
At any rate, I did not have a Chapter 4 post yesterday. I’m not going to have one today, either.
Instead of rushing and trying to re-write the post for Chapter 4 and writing the post for my favorite chapter (Riddles in the Dark) in a single week, I’ve decided to take a bit of leisure. I’ll re-write Chapter 4 this week and post it this coming Sunday. I will then resume the weekly schedule with Chapter 5 appearing the following Sunday.
I apologize for this delay. But it’s a good opportunity to catch up if you’ve fallen behind (or it may even offer you a chance to offer up your reflections on the story so far)!
