Avoiding Crossword Puzzle Ego Erosion

I enjoy sitting down at the kitchen table each Saturday morning to solve the Sudoku and Crossword puzzles in the the East Valley Tribune newspaper. These puzzles may not be as challenging as their counterparts in the New York Times, but the level is just right for me.

Today, while trying to get un-stuck over a few words in the crossword puzzle, I found a great little tool on the Internet, the Allwords.com crossword solver. For crossword purists, using this is probably heresy, but it helped me get over the hump on the words “scallop” and “plight.”

It was also timely to discover the Allwords.com Word of the Week: “Erode generally refers to the process of erosion and the wearing down of mountains and other natural formations. Worse is an erosion of your confidence or self esteem.”

Just think, because of Allwords.com, my self esteem didn’t erode due to crossword puzzle failure!
