Usually, in a freestyle grid, you’ll see a standard triple stack of some length somewhere in the grid, filtering into some shorter fill on the outside or the inside of the grid. This one has none of that — it has a very unusual look from the start. Lots of scatter in the pattern and not much order. Much of the reason for this was that I wanted to focus on getting a couple of 14s in the grid, but I didn’t really want to do the standard grid spanner bracketed by an L-shaped group of blocks. The seed entry was put in at 14-Down originally, but only a few letters from that original entry survived into the final product — it’s funny how the construction process can work! The only negative upshot is the larger (but not obscenely large) amount of three-letter entries than usual. I was careful with those, though.

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!
