Hope you like the number seven, because there are a ton of seven-letter entries in here. I finally got enough sevens in my seed list to make one of these, because it’s fairly easy to seed each corner with an entry and go from there. I tried the two entries now at 57-Across and 61-Across in every other corner, in every order, until I finally made them work where they are now. For some reason, I thought I’d have an easier time than I did to find a third entry to work with those two in a stack.


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!

  1. This one was great – lots of really, really fun sevens, which are low-key the best length of word. Also felt a lot more modern in the fill? [Hardly a natural conversationist?] for instance – that’s a great entry.
