My own methods vary from time to time. Sometimes I decide I want to write about a particular theme and then find the story. At other times I find the story first and the themes become apparent through the process of writing. Whatever your approach, it is well worth putting some thought into it before you commit yourself to the hard work of writing out the story.
I personally put a great deal of thought into my themes and there are some themes, like betrayal, bullying, survival, and loneliness, that resonate with me particularly. I have explored those several times both in non-fiction and fiction.
