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 ALALA2DGreek battle cry, or designer brand name in athletic clothing[-----]/NAI8ARomanian pan flute[---] crossing but it worked out 🎉. Great first puzzle wisprabbit!

      thank you mike! I'm glad those clues are guessable, because those are the ones i was worried about

      I got naticked in the end but this is a great first entry!

          Congratulations on a fun first puzzle: nice theme! 👏
          I also got naticked on the ALALA2DGreek battle cry, or designer brand name in athletic clothing[-----]/NAI8ARomanian 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 PALAU4AIsland nation[-----] mentioned... well, anywhere.
            I also learned something new today. I didn't think HAITI3DIsland nation[-----] would've qualified because it doesn't occupy the whole island, but Wikipedia says I'm wrong.
