Crosswords are one of my favorite types of puzzles out there. Though I've been doing crosswords most of my life, I've never actually tried to construct one. I’ve hidden a few puzzle caches, and I thought this time around, I might finally give constructing a shot and integrate it into my latest hide. I have a specific weakness for the Sunday puzzle in a certain nationally distributed newspaper, so I designed my crossword with that in mind. Whew – crossword construction is tough! It took a lot longer to fit everything together than I thought it would, and there are more awkward spots than I would like, but overall, I’m proud of the end result. Enjoy!
Congrats to thebyrdcache for FTF!
