Forgive me that I like to talk shop in a lot of these posts, but I nerd out about crossword construction sometimes! I think this is what I’m going to do from now on when I have 10- or 11-stacks intersected by the grid spanner. Breaking up the corner into doubles instead of triples spreads the impact a little around the grid instead of having three fixed letters in a long stack. Not that any of these constructions are a breeze, but that made those corners so much easier and didn’t really make the rest of the grid any harder to construct.

Thanks so much to all who’ve left a tip! It’s much appreciated, believe me.

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

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