It's been a while

Hey, I'm sorry that the maintanence of this blog has fallen into complete oblivion. I've widened my crossword regimen to include the NY Sun and the LA Times each morning. Now that I construct crosswords, I've become more critical (snobbish?) about themes, and I really want to see what's out there. Plus, I've sold puzzles to the Sun and LA Times, so I want to make sure I know what kind of puzzles they print. I hate to say it, but Peter Gordon is really doing some cutting edge stuff with his puzzles. I've been rejected there so many times! Anyways! That's what's down with my life now. Thinking up themes all the time. It's really crazy! Anyways, at this point, I've sent 20 puzzles to the NYT, some better than others, and I just play the waiting game now.

Don't feel bad - Peter Gordon is a tough nut to crack. Everything I've run by him - themes and themelesses - haven't been up to his snuff. I just gave up.
