An amusing quote in a movie review yesterday inspired me to create a short double crostic puzzle. It's pretty easy. For now, it's here on the Double Crostic Site if you'd like to try it. Click on "bonus" in the left hand column.

If you haven't done one of these before, the idea is this: fill in as many of the definitions in the right hand column as you can. When you run out of steam, you can begin to work backwords by guessing words in the now partially filled-in quote, which will, in turn, provide helpful letters in the definitions. Also, the first letters of the definitions, reading down, will spell out the names of the author and the title of the quote. Good solvers work back and forth until the quotation has revealed itself.

I've never completed a crossword puzzle in my life (nor have I ever really tried) so, quite honestly, I didn't find it quite so easy!

I love that you created a puzzle though and hope you'll share others in the future.

Fun puzzle! And it sounds like a thumbs-up review.
