I started this grid looking for two fifteen-letter entries from my seed list that had the eighth letter in common. Since 12-Down was another seed, I started in the upper right. The structure of this grid evolved in a funny way: it actually started the way you see it now (minus the helper squares at the end of 1-Down and 42-Across, of course), but the evolution of the grid dictated that I switch around the blocks on the diagonal. I didn’t quite like how it was coming out… so I ended up switching around some of those diagonal blocks again, and it ended up back how I started it! Sometimes certain things were just meant to be.
My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is at 1-Across. Looking back, I guess I’m not surprised at that, though. Also, 30-Down was a new bit of technology that I came across very recently; I managed to fit it into the grid, though I didn’t originally intend to.
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!
