Planning

Since I'm basically broke and have a three-day Memorial weekend coming up, what better way to spend it than designing my first e-book? I will have ample time to review old work, refresh/revise as needed, and put it together per the guidelines on Amazon (and BN, I suspect, though I haven't been there yet to check out their program). Now I have to figure out what theme my first book should be. Perhaps I should make it a poll! Well, perhaps not.
 
While I was working on a book a few years ago, I came up with a few themes:
  • Love
  • Sex
  • Gay
  • Anger/Emotional
  • Death/Solitude
  • Imbalance/Psychosis
Reviewing this list, and how much I've grown as a poet since I chose these categories, I think I have to reconsider. Should I try to use themes? Should I pick stuff at random, or poems that have tenuous connections? I welcome thoughts and suggestions as I try to bring my first e-book to fruition. Remember, I'm only looking to publish a small amount (12-15) of poems at a time to sell for a small price (a few bucks).

Why setting up a theme? Set up a story, with a poem or two of each of the themes, painting a certain picture.

And title it Potovanje - Journey in Slovene. It will make it exotic. :)

Thanks for the suggestions, Tomaz. I might ask you to translate other words for me, though, if that's okay.
