Consider the unfortunate life of the 14-letter entry. Its mere presence causes entire grids to look odd or out of whack. It forces unwanted three-letter entries. Unless you want an odd-shaped grid, a wide-open grid, and/or weird symmetry, you’re forced to either deal with those issues or not consider 14s at all… or find more creative ways to include them in the grid. You’ll see what I did when you open this grid — stacks of 14-14-15. Yes, it’s an odd look, but it’s the least intrusive, in my opinion, way to get 14-letter entries into 15×15 grid. My 14-letter list in my seed entry list was getting a little long and neglected, so I figured I’d give it a little love.

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!
