This grid is a prime example of why I take care to call them “helper squares” instead of “cheater squares”. There are three pairs of them in this grid — and I needed all of them not to get me a fill, but to get me a better fill. Besides, the grid is all about the fill when we’re talking freestyle crosswords. No one goes to a sports game to watch the refs, they go to watch what the athletes do; no one does a freestyle puzzle to see the black squares, they’re in it just for what’s in the white areas.

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!
