Puzzle No. 33: Themeless
Lots more guest appearances on the horizon, but I'm back today with a (hopefully fun!) 72-worder. This one didn't start with a seed entry — instead, I had lots of fun adjusting the placement of black squares to maximize 8+ letter slots (14 of them!) and minimize 3-letter slots (just 6). I'm happy with how it came together! If you give it a go, I'd love to hear what you think.
