Crosswords by Linda O. Johnston

November 6, 2020 by in category Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense by Linda O. Johnston

November? Already? This year is nearly over. Where did it go?

Well, we still have over a month to go. Then what?
Who knows?

One thing, though, is that I think we all need to relax. There’s a lot of stress in our lives because of the pandemic, its health and economic results, politics lately, and more.

So how to handle it?

Well, when I first started trying to come up with a topic for my post this time, I wanted to use a theme of fun in writing but relaxation, if possible.  So what did I come up with?

Crossword puzzles!

Oh, they’re not for everyone. But they’re definitely for me. I like to do at least two daily, the first online, and the next after dinner while watching TV–print versions, often in various newspapers.

I feel like they keep my mind active in similar but different ways from my writing. Love to keep up with, and increase, my vocabulary! And of course anything I learn in a crossword might be usable in a story somehow.  Plus, yes, I find them relaxing.

I also enjoy doing other kinds of word puzzles, particularly acrostics. They’re crosswords in a way, using definitions, but you then plug parts into a grid and come up with a saying or message. Fun!

So, okay. I don’t really have anything else to say about crosswords right now, but I’d be delighted to hear your opinion.  And me?  Time for me to do my next online crossword!
