Although Keith made significant progress in fleshing out the story, primarily a shift to a first person narrative, this story is now being delayed. In light of the recent U.S. Presidential election and the similarities between Andy and the new President-Elect, Keith feels that this story must be set aside. It will be picked up at some point, and is still part two of the red book, when its release will be delayed.

Progress has been slow going as Keith has had to deal with a lot of distractions over the past few months. Problems currently holding up the writing of chapter 2 include technological problems and difficulty finding the right time to write. Keith has reviewed the first round of edits to Chapter 1 and made the appropriate changes. He is also paying heed to the notes as he further develops the story. Just because Keith hasn't been writing Andy's story doesn't mean he hasn't been writing. For the past three months Keith has maintained a genealogy blog with near daily updates on his research into his family history, a passion of his going back over a decade. Furthermore, Keith continues to explore new business opportunities that will come in handy when the book is complete as well as support future works. As always, keep up with us on twitter and also check out the aois21 blog at aois21.tumblr.com.

When the creativity bug bites, it leaves quite the mark. Chapter 1, Hi, is complete. Keith hopes to continue the pace through the week and hopefully knock off at least one more chapter by the weekend. Whether that will be Chapter 2 or Chapter 6, no one can be sure. But this brings Andy 4 President to 28.57% complete!

In a bit of a change-up, the last chapter of Andy 4 President is the first to be completed. Keith finished Chapter 7, Adjournment, late Saturday night. He is over halfway complete with Chapter 1, resulting in a 20% completion rate.

This development has allowed us to move forward with publishing the Official Andy 4 President Facebook page! Once a few fans have signed on, we will get the specific Facebook.com address.

Today's focus is on creating the new Millennial Row webpage, but Andy 4 President is deep in the development stage. Since Life's Penance has completed the writing stage and moved onto editing, Andy 4 President is moving into the writing stage this week with the beginnings of Chapter 1 already complete. The remaining Chapters have been outlined and tentatively titled: Chapter 1 - Hi; Chapter 2- Ranking Democrat; Chapter 3- Commissioner Gordon; Chapter 4- Expenditures; Chapter 5 - Fraud; Chapter 6 - Shame; and Chapter 7 - Adjournment. That is a bit of a sneak peak for you.
We will update here and on the Andy 4 President Facebook page as Keith completes each chapter. This novella is expected to be shorter than Life's Penance, somewhere in the range of 20,000 to 30,000 words.
