Crossword Puzzles

Post by MicahSommer »

As someone (I think Glenn) mentioned in the livechat during my SF Live set on the first night, I also make crossword puzzles. I post a new one each weekday at https://crosshare.org/sommersmith. There you can peruse old puzzles and/or hit the "Follow" button to get notified by email about new ones. They're usually mini 4x4 or 5x5, with larger ones usually on Fridays and, starting recently, a full-size 15x15 every two weeks. As of right now I've posted 41 puzzles.

Today's puzzle may especially interest some of you, as may this one from a while ago. Otherwise I try to keep things pretty generalist, though there's a fair amount of music references.

I've found that constructing crosswords is a fun complement to songwriting; it scratches similar creative itches in different ways. Others seem to agree: crumpart has posted one and frankie big face has posted a bunch. Crosshare is free and open-source and the puzzle constructor is pretty user-friendly. Maybe you should try making a puzzle!
