Themeless #4

April 22, 2022

For my fourth themeless, I wanted to do a super low word count — 62 to be exact. I also was interested in building a grid with what is known in the business as “supersymmetry” or symmetry along all axes. Although the average word length is long (almost six letters), the grid does not feature any grid spanning interesting words or phrases and I thought that would limit its appeal to editors. Hence, I’m not submitting this anywhere.

Although this is technically a themeless, I did fill out the grid with a semi-interesting characteristic that I will leave to the solver to discover. Suffice to say, an alternative title might have been “Themelesss”.
