I was thinking about this in relation to the a-z blogfest because this year I actually have a theme as opposed to last year when I pretty much just winged it. I've also already started writing my posts in advance because I'm hoping to spend time checking out other blogs as well as make time for my regulars. If I schedule my posts in advance, I may be able to accomplish just that!
I was also thinking of theme as it has to do with writing, specifically, the theme of my latest work in progress, LONG WAY HOME.* Because I thought about theme before I ever wrote the first sentence, before I even started outlining, plotting. I wanted a particular theme to run through the book. And I think this may be the first time I consciously thought about theme BEFORE starting to write.
Do you enjoy books with certain themes? Is theme something you think about before you start writing?
* working title - I like it, but it's been done a few too many times. oh well.
