I promised a 68-word grid either today or Tuesday… well, it’s definitely going to be Tuesday. I have a Friday freestyle for you, anyway. This is a rare grid that maintained its block shape from the start. That doesn’t mean that I really forced anything into a space where it shouldn’t go, by any means; it means that things went along so fluidly (probably a little bit of luck involved too) that I didn’t feel the need to make any changes. I got a little cute with some of the clues — in a good way, of course — so I really have no idea how easy or hard this one is going to be. I never estimate the difficulty of my puzzles anyway, because there have been some puzzles I thought to be easy that turned out hard, and vice versa.
My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is in 39-Down, that it didn’t originate from where I thought it did. Maybe some of you knew the answer anyway, but it was new and interesting to me.
As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?
As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!
