A Bit Too Wordy (PfP #70a)

· By Conflux · Published 15 days ago

Constructor's Note: This was my attempt at a crossword that’s way too wordy, but it really ended up only a bit too wordy. Anyway, normal crossword rules apply!
Check out more of my puzzles at tinyurl.com/puzzlesforprogress - this crossword is part of Issue #70.
