You know what?
At the risk of really setting off a firestorm here...
I use tons of stuff (Indesign, Pagemaker, Pages, Word, Keynote, etc.)...
Now, mind you, when I use it, it is to make something RIGHT NOW that needded to be made an hour ago... but Powerpoint is simple, straight ahead and easy to put stuff on your pages and see how it comes out.
No, you don't get some of the cooler effects, text wraps, layers, etc. that you can get in the other programs, but if you don't want to spend time learning the program, then keep it simple.
Powerpoint (for me, maybe because I have used it for a bazillion years) is very visual, very intuitive, I can be neanderthal man and use it "Bob put picture here, Bob put words here, Bob press print here".
Also, you could have someone else help you, if you are interested, I can refer someone that does alot of the poet's chapbooks here in Mesa (and our DVD's, Cd's and other multimedia).
Take all that for what it's worth, my first four chapbooks were hand written...
