Have something you wanna say? Got a question? Want to do a guest freestyle? Want to collaborate on a freestyle? Want to just say hello? Hit me up by email!

It always causes trouble when I want 12-letter entries that have been gathering dust in my seed list to enter the party. I don’t like putting them in the fourth row, because that forces three 3-letter entries in each corner stacked together (which I normally want to avoid, except when I use 11-stacks), so they’re normally five or less rows apart. That has the effect of squishing the middle together… which, in this case, created the cluster of 3-letter entries in the middle that I wanted to avoid anyway! Sometimes you can’t avoid fate in the crossword world.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Tuesday!
