I have heard of some people who claim that crosswords are a form of self-awareness, but that’s just not true. To a large degree, crosswords are just a bunch of puzzles that are designed to test your knowledge. It’s like trying to figure out why the answer is “seven” when it is “two” or “two” when it is “two.” It’s a puzzle with no end.
There is a great difference between crosswords and puzzles, though. Puzzles are meant to be solved, and crosswords are meant to be shared.
At best, a crossword is a challenge to your knowledge. At worst, it is just a bunch of random numbers that don’t mean anything.
Crosswords have always been a thing. They have a unique power to inspire people, as the puzzle designer was once part of the famed British team that made the classic game, Jumble. But it’s also true that at the end of the day, the world is better when you share your knowledge.
I have found that crossword puzzles are an excellent way for people who aren’t necessarily skilled at the game to take the next step in their game development. For instance, I have found that crosswords can be used to build confidence in people before they start doing something. For instance, I’ve found that people who are good at crosswords are also good at math, so it’s a win-win situation. So that’s why I love crosswords.
Just to be clear, crossword puzzles are not really a form of self-awareness, they are more about building your own base of knowledge. They are, however, much more fun to play than traditional word searches because they require a bit more creativity and imagination on your part.
I remember once being asked a question about the crossword, and being asked to read the answers. I was like, “I’m not sure I’m reading all that.” But the next day I saw an answer that made me laugh out loud. This was about a crossword I wrote that asked for the shortest and most obscure word in the English language. However the word I chose was something called “bark.
This was a very clever, very clever crossword puzzle that gave me a lot of laughs. The whole point of the crossword puzzle was to create a random word with no known meaning. No one had to guess anything, because the word was just there. But, if you thought your life was boring, this one would entertain you.
I think I might have had a few giggles. But I think it was the word bark that made me laugh.
Bark! You know the word bark! A dog! A dog is a dog is a dog! But that’s not all. The word bark is also a verb. Barking is a verb, and the verb bark is also a noun. In the dictionary, we know dog as a noun and we know the verb to bark as a verb. These are two different things. So to make life interesting, I decided to cross-reference the word bark with the word, dog.
