How to Organize a Manuscript


I have been searching the internet, books, articles etc…re: organizing a book manuscript. There is a lot of information out there re: software and other writing aids, to help with organizing books of all types.

Here’s a  post I recently found interesting and informative regarding organizing a collection of poetry.

 One of my goals/projects for 2011 is to have a collection of my poems printed/published  in book  and/or ebook formats. The poems are chosen (too many, I know that already) now what?

If any of you have already compiled/printed/published a collection (perhaps more than one!) of your poems, I’d love to hear about your experience. And any websites, companies that were helpful, please share. Thank you.

PS: Speaking of poetry books/collections, I just posted this  review of one of my all-time favorite haiku books over at My Real Life Reviews. Hope to see you there soon!
