Come Back Again

This is, without a doubt, the best crossword I've ever written, which isn't really saying much, but there you go. It contains some dud entries, but for the most part writing it made me happy, and left me with plenty of ideas for next time, too.



As faithful readers of my uneventful blog you guys can be its first victims/beta testers, before I decide whether or not to submit it to a local magazine or something, just for the fun of collecting rejection slips. If you'd like an across lite version of the puzzle, drop me an email.

The idea came to me last night and before the sun rose it was complete. Have fun, and don't be worried if you can't get anywhere, it's pretty tricksy, if I say so myself.

I seriously can not do unAmerican crosswords. I understand them in theory, I can understand why the answers work once they have been explained, but I can't DO them, including the ones designed for children. But maybe I'll throw myself at this one as an opportunity for growth.

Also, welcome back.

Thankyou, It's good to be back, at least temporarily.
I'll be back for good come the beginning of february.
I think 4,25,6 and 15 are the easiest clues, but they're also amonst the least interesting. So it goes.

After the theory class I came back to try to apply my new wisdom. I got 12 Down, but I have no idea WHY it is what it is. Damn cryptics.
