I’m lucky that the top center was adaptable in this grid, because I went through many, many permutations of letter combinations and block combinations in the bottom center before I found one that worked. Originally, this was a 70-word grid, with the block between what’s now 5-Down and 27-Down once gone. In fact, that was the crux of the issue with not being able to get the bottom center to work — it was a begrudging act to add that block, because I really liked the original 8-letter entry at 5-Down. Sometimes you’ve got to make sacrifices in one part of the grid for another part to work. It’s just that pesky little rule of symmetry…
