I’m Terry Brennan, an avid fan of crosswords and relative beginner at cryptic crosswords. I tried solving cryptics in the past but was never successful. Then I found toughasnails.net written by Stella Zawistowski. If you haven’t visited her site or follow her on Twitter, you really should. She publishes a cryptic clue every day and this is a good way to improve your skills.
Back in October she featured a cryptic by Nate Cardin. That puzzle was the first I ever completed. When I let her and Nate know, Nate suggested that one day I might write my own. With his guidance, I have begun to construct.
So this is my quarantine hobby now. I am publishing my own cryptics. I hope you enjoy them.
