I have a really hard time coming up with themes, which is why I don't construct too often. Much of the time, I try to think of an entry I'd like to see in the puzzle, and then try to build a theme around it. This was the case with TEXTBOOK EXAMPLE, which has the sexy 15-letter length and the X's. Incidentally, although I am in grad school right now, I'm happy to say that it has been a long time since I actually had to buy a textbook. I have spent a small fortune on the library copier, however.
