Do you compose crossword clues for a living?
That'd sure be a neat job! But nah... if I did it for a living, I'd imagine I wouldn't have misspelled 10 Across, where the 2nd letter is supposed to be an "O"... not an "A"....
I'm always rather taken with brains that are capable of such thinking. When did you discover this skill and are there any particular shortcuts to solving one?
This was not as difficult as it looks. This is from a generator, where I just input the words and clues, and it configured the layout for me.
One of my latest relaxing / de-stressing hobbies has been crossword puzzles. So wanted to try and make one. Thought it would be fun.
This particular one actually breaks some crossword puzzle "rules", like how you're supposed to have every word connected to both a down and an across word. Hopefully my 2nd try will be better.
Anyone that wants to try, just go to a site like this w/ a generator... you just input the Answers and Clues... it'll do the rest for you! Not much skill needed doing it like this.
Are their shortcuts? Yes. Ask @Hip
for answers, lol. I'd imagine he'd be the only one that could maybe
solve this w/out cheating (Googling). Actually, @Thebirdman333
is impressively rocking through it quickly
