Themeless puzzle [number of multi-word entries]
« on: March 06, 2014, 11:03:53 AM »
If for example the NW, NE, SW, and SE have 3 stacks of 10-letter entries, how many of those 12 10-letter entries should consist of two or more words? I always wonder if it's okay to put a single word in sometimes.

Any help would be appreciated thank you.

It's fine to include an occasional single-word entry in the stacks you describe.  Lively words work best;  Conversational words are also acceptable.  Less desirable words might contain lifeless prefixes and suffixes like PRE-, MULTI-, INTER-, -NESS, -OUSLY, -ENCE, -MENT, etc. Technical words are discouraged.

I would probably limit the single-word entries to one in a stack of three and very rarely two in a stack of four.
