this is the first American-style crossword i've ever set. it turns out setting crosswords is way harder than it looks.

    Oh wow I loved all of the "Island nation" clues! I kind of ended up taking a guess on the ALALA
    2D ALALAGreek battle cry, or designer brand name in athletic clothing
    /NAI
    8A NAIRomanian pan flute
    crossing but it worked out 🎉. Great first puzzle wisprabbit!

          Congratulations on a fun first puzzle: nice theme! 👏
          I also got naticked on the ALALA
          2D ALALAGreek battle cry, or designer brand name in athletic clothing
          /NAI
          8A NAIRomanian pan flute
          crossing, but everything else came smoothly and it was worth it to get so many island nations into such a small puzzle!

            Love the theme! You don't often see PALAU
            4A PALAUIsland nation
            mentioned... well, anywhere.
            I also learned something new today. I didn't think HAITI
            3D HAITIIsland nation
            would've qualified because it doesn't occupy the whole island, but Wikipedia says I'm wrong.
