10:53 pm and I just finished today’s Listener puzzle, “Cruciverbalism” by Poat. It looks incredibly tough at first, and I was wondering whether I’d be finishing this one by Monday at all. The puzzle is another diagramless sort, and I had to solve about half the clues cold, without any help from crossings, before I was able to start to fit even a few of the answers together; but the puzzle became quite a bit easier once I’d gotten the first few words into the grid, and then when I saw what the omitted letters were going to spell, the rest fell together pretty easily.
