This post (well, the day after this post, really) marks the first anniversary of the launch of this website. Since I just keep plugging along on these puzzles, this sort of snuck up on me. I’m happy to have entertained you for this long, and I don’t plan on stopping at any time soon! I’ve developed a good rhythm in my grid construction pattern… I’ve settled into a groove here. Don’t confuse a groove for a rut, though.

What about the puzzle now? Ah yes, the puzzle. The two seeds were the fourteens at 20-Across and 52-Across, obviously. But I also managed to get 24-Across and 42-Down in there from my seed list. The most stubborn part of the grid was the top center/top left; it was downright intractable for quite a while. I almost scrapped 24-Across as a seed entry, in fact — actually, I did take it out to fill that corner, but it worked out that I was actually able to put it back in.

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!

  1. It’s a treat to have a real challenge with some “aha moments” early in the week. Well constructed/clued. Many thanks.
