The impetus for this grid, obviously, was the discovery that the long across and the long down answers share a common letter. (I still got a couple other entries from the seed list into the grid, namely 1-Across and 63-Across.) Once you open the grid, note that the original block structure for this grid was your standard long diagonals from NE to SW and SE to NW, omitting the center block, of course. You’ll have to trust me on this one, because this was a classic case of the force of words doing what it will. I almost never intend to make those semi-closed-off corners from the start, and I certainly didn’t this time.

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 Tuesday!
